THIRTEEN Muswellbrook Public School students have big shoes to fill in 2020.
And, they've already received the "seal of approval" from their fellow pupils and leadership team.
The group - Molly Hayes, Isla Cullen, Elka Kemp, Zoe Pritchard, Chelsea Vanderwerf, Libby-Lou Stephens, Joseph Votonisoga, Blake Frazer, Jake Bastick, Bailey Wilton, Harlan Heusler, Daniel Lyne and Tyler Mullard - was recently elected as school counsellors.
Muswellbrook Public principal Joan Stephens was happy to extol the virtues of the youngsters.
"Congratulations to Molly, Isla, Elka, Zoe, Chelsea, Libby-Lou, Joseph, Blake, Jake, Bailey, Harlan, Daniel and Tyler, who all secured school counsellor positions last Tuesday," she said.
"We also commend the students, who voted for these pupils, as they have made some fine decisions.
"The announcements of our school captain/vice captains will be made on Presentation Day.
"But, judging by the smiles on the students' faces, they are very proud to be selected."
