Our Students


Leadership is encouraged and developed across all areas of the school. From the earliest age, there are many opportunities to take on leadership roles and explore individual gifts and talents. The younger students see this role modelled daily by older students and are keen to try different roles. Our weekly assembly provides a regular opportunity to practise these skills, as do our regular liturgies and masses. Some of the roles taken on by students are liturgy leaders, assembly leaders, altar servers, choir, Student Council, ICT leaders, Big Buddies, Peer Tutors and many others.

Leadership Opportunities For Our Students

Student council

The student council is made up of ten students who are elected by the student body. Students who want to be apart of the council must give a short speech about why they should be in the student council and what they’ll do to make the year fun and enjoyable. Then the students and teachers have a vote to determine who makes the council.

2019 Student Councillors:  Amanda R10, Noah R8, Remy R8, Fatimai R10, Annabelle R8, Ella R9, Cara R8, Marcus R9, Eva R10 and Julianne R10.

House captain

There are four houses at Sacred Heart: Woodpigeon, Fantail, White Heron, and Kingfisher. Every year the students in each house vote for who they want to be the house captains.

2019 House Captains:

Woodpigeon:  Charlize R9, Eoghan R10

Fantail:  Katie R8, Thomas H R9, Ashton R10

White Heron:  Tifa R9, Marley R10
