Student leadership is developed in a variety of ways to empower the children to be thoughtful, respectful, confident and responsible members of this school community. Class captains are elected through a speech process and peer voting throughout all class levels. As the children progress through the school their responsibilities are increased, this begins with the election of class captains from P-6. The students in years 5 and 6 have responsibilities for planning and running assembly each week.
Our Student Leadership Team is made up of School Captains, House Captains and Tribes/Better Buddies Captains. Students are provided with many opportunities to develop their individual skills. They regularly run programs/activities for the whole school, with teacher supervision, that also develops their confidence and public speaking skills. The importance of the balance between academic, social and emotional learning has been a priority for us and has steered the types of programs we have implemented over the years.
