Student Leadership

Student Leaders at Coorparoo State School are the student representatives of our learning community. This representation is a public position with student leaders being called upon on official / special occasions (at the discretion of the Principal) to embrace and model all values and expectations of students within our community. In addition to this students leaders will:

  • Be responsible to the school administration and should carry out all duties asked of them by any member of the school administration

  • Promote all goals and values that are important at Coorparoo State School

  • Display exemplary conduct and attitudes relating to all areas of school life

  • Work enthusiastically with fellow students in assisting the educational opportunities for all

During Semester 2 all Year  5 students participate in a series of leadership sessions led by the Deputy Principal. Students are then given the opportunity to write responses to a series of leadership questions and to deliver a persuasive speech for positions as School Leaders. After these speeches have been delivered to their year level peers and teachers, voting and interviews take place to fill the school leadership positions.

The following leadership positions will be included in the leadership application process that commences in Term 3:

School Captain                                              
House Captain                         
Student Council Representative   
NB: for the purpose of gender equality, this selection process aims to appoint a successful/suitable male and female to each of the leadership positions. In the event gender equality cannot be achieved (due to not enough successful/suitable applicants in each gender), appointments will be made based on the most successful/suitable applicant for each of the positions regardless of gender.
During the first weeks of the school year, applications will then be invited for additional leadership roles that may include:
       Music Captain                                         
       Environment Captain   
       Cultural Captain          
       Library Leader                                      
       Student Mentor
       LOTE Leader
       Art Monitor
