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.

 

 

IntroductionThe 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.

Members of the Student Representative Council 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 SRC are related to being strong leaders within our school. For example, this year, the SRC was responsible for running each morning assembly as well as the fortnightly whole school assembly. 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, Cure Cancer Australia, and UNICEF, and to our school through organised events such as the School Disco.
