Student leadership provides opportunities for students to demonstrate and develop their talents, skills and interests while continuing to build new skills.
The purpose of the Middle School Student Leadership is to:
- Create opportunities for student ownership in whole school decisions
- Allow students to care and encourage other students
- Allow students to feel in control of their learning
- To learn new skills in the service of others
- To feel connected with others.
Each student is encouraged to take responsibility for routine classroom duties and Year 9 students in particular are formally recognised as Leaders of Middle School. Students at all levels in the Middle School are given many opportunities to develop skills in responsible leadership.
Year 9 Ambassadors
The Year 9 Ambassador program helps to develop outstanding school and community leaders. Selection as an Ambassador is via application and interview and is open to all interested students. The Year 9 Ambassadors are the senior leadership group in the Middle School and are involved in school promotion, tours, assisting in special events (eg. Grandparent's Day), acting as peer supports for new students and organising special activities (eg. Middle School Social, Lunchtime Sports).
Middle School House Captains
House Captains are chosen each year through a secret ballot voting system. Middle School House Captains assist the Senior School House Captains at sporting carnivals and inter-house activities and events. There is a high expectation placed on House Captains to be exemplary role models to younger students.
Student Representative Council (SRC)
SRC is an avenue for students to suggest ideas, discuss issues and work together to see these achieved in the Middle and Senior Schools. Students on the SRC also have the opportunity to sit on various school committees (eg. Uniform Committee).
