Students from Beaudesert, Darlington, Gleneagle, Jimboomba, Rathdowney, Tamrookum and Veresdale Scrub State Schools learned valuable tips on how to be successful in their roles as captains.

This is the first inter school leadership event hosted at Flagstone State School.

Jordan MP Charis Mullen shared her own experience with leadership as a former school prefect and current member of parliament.

School leaders were encouraged to do an excellent job tackling one or two issues rather than putting in a mediocre effort on six or more priorities.

Ms Mullen said leadership took many forms.

"It is important to instill in these wonderful young school leaders that their journey will be unique, but it will also be a little bit challenging at times as well," she said.

"Through my personal journey, I hope they learn a little bit more about what that means."

Tamrookum State School captain Kobi Durox said she valued the words of wisdom.

"I've learned that a leader doesn't always have to be perfect," she said.

"I hope to show others that they are perfect the way they are."

Gleneagle State School vice-captain Olivia Coulter said it was important for people to realise leadership was a team effort.

"What I leanred today is that when you think you are doing well it is good to have a team around to know if you are doing a good or bad job," she said.

"I try really hard to make school fairer for everybody so no one is higher than the other."

Flagstone State School leader Kyon Croker said he valued the opportunity to share leadership experiences with students from different school communities.

Darlington State School captain Jackson Hohl said his goal was to leave behind a legacy which would be remembered.
