A primary school in Sydney started the debate after asking students from year 5 to request a school captain by a & # 39; ridiculous & # 39; CV of two pages.

Mother of two told Natalie Reilly Kidspot she was baffled & # 39; when she reads through the strict guidelines for children between 10 and 11.

Candidates must submit a resume, a & # 39; title page & # 39; submit with your skills, prizes and summary of your training, and & # 39; supporting evidence & # 39; such as photos & # 39; s showing & # 39; how you meet the selection criteria & # 39 ;.

& # 39; If you think you have what it takes to lead the school assemblies, in the playground, in the classroom, and in all other areas of school life, read the selection criteria and apply for the opportunity of your school career, & # 39; said the application.

The perfect candidates must demonstrate leadership qualities, be self-regulating, demonstrate teamwork and have exceptional communication and speaking skills & # 39 ;.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted the NSW Department of Education for comments.

Australian parents went to social media to reveal that their young children had to go through a similar process to apply for the position of captain at school.

& # 39; My daughter had to do exactly that. She was told to treat it as if she were applying, & a mother said.

& # 39; All consequences apply to the role as in an adult employment, written warnings x 3, and if the role after the warnings was still not properly performed, children were & # 39; released from the position of home captain or a school captain. & # 39;

Despite the extreme possibilities of applying for school captain, the mother said that her youngster could catch a glimpse of the real world.

& # 39; I thought it was quite a lot to expect from children, because they are children after all. But after a year in this role, my daughter has said a few times that working is difficult, & the mother said.

& # 39; She often tells me she understands if I have a difficult day at work. I think it helped her to empathize more, she gets upset when she sees someone rude to a cashier in the shops, etc., because she has been on the receiving end with other classmates who make it difficult for her. & # 39;

Another parent said that her daughter was required to complete an application before she completed two rounds of interviews, followed by a speech and then a voice survey.

Another mother said: & # 39; It used to look more like politics. Whoever wins the popularity competition gets the position. & # 39;

But some parents said they preferred the long applications because they thought it was fair for all children who applied for the position.

In 2017, an Australian mother revealed how she stayed up all night and helped her 11-year-old daughter complete an application for school captain

Her little girl had to write a full-page letter with her organizational and communication skills and how she & # 39; would be open to new learning experiences & # 39 ;.

& # 39; This bloody thing took us until 11 p.m. to finish … To be honest, I'm a little worried. This girl is a high performer and she works so hard to get there, & # 39; said the mother, along with a picture of the criteria.

She said her hard-working daughter was part of her school's dance group, senior choir, cheerleader, netball, and volunteers to read to preschoolers.

& # 39; So I'm scared. I'm afraid if this doesn't work for her, she's broken (I know, life skills that sometimes don't match, don't happen the way you want), & she said.

& # 39; I'm afraid if she gets schoolmaster, this poor girl runs into the ground. Ugh, the struggle of parenthood. & # 39;
