2020 Student Leadership Positions

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.
