Student leadership

Student leadership

Student leadership helps young people find their voices, participate in decision-making, and understand their rights and responsibilities as active citizens. It helps students have a real impact on their learning and school environment and prepares them to participate meaningfully in their community.

Students can be leaders in the classroom, through their actions in the playground, through their support for others, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or local community events or projects.

For more information about opportunities in NSW public schools, visit Student voice and 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 of 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 a Peer Support group.

Students representative council

The school's Students Representative Council (SRC) consists of two students from each class, grades 2 - 6.

Student representatives are elected by their peers each semester. They are involved in fundraising for the school, attending SRC meetings and providing communication between the student leadership team and their class. They also perform special duties, such as laying wreaths at our annual Anzac Day assembly.

Leadership Team 2020

Eight students make up the leadership team consisting of two school captains, two vice captains and four prefects.

  • School Captains: Sophie J and Ben C
  • Vice Captains: Oscar P and Clementine G
  • Prefects: Fleur H, Calista S, Riley B and Jacob L  

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.


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.
