Our School - Student Leadership

Students don’t have to be school captains or house captains to be considered leaders. We encourage our students to be leaders in the classroom and playground, through their support for other students, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or community events and projects. This year all our Year 6 students have a leadership role within the school. They will also act as mentors to our year 5 students who will lead their Peer Support group in Term 4.

 

Introduction to the Leadership Team

The Student Representative Council program provides an opportunity for students to develop leadership skills, a strategy which recognises that teaching leadership behaviours is a crucial element in ultimately creating responsible citizens within our society.

 

Leadership Team 2017

In 2017, eight students make up the Leadership Team consisting of two school captains, two vice captains and four prefects.

Members of the Leadership Team have a variety of important responsibilities, in both leadership and fundraising and work collaboratively with staff to achieve their outcomes.

 

Leadership

Many of the responsibilities of the Leadership Team are related to being strong leaders within our school. For example, this year, the leadership team was responsible for running each week’s assembly as well as the whole school assemblies. They learned skills in time management, public speaking and working collaboratively with teachers and students.

 

Fundraising

Fundraising contributes to the national and global community through charities such as Stewart House and World Vision, and to our school and our sister school through organised events such as Crazy Sock Days and Mufti Days.
