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.

2021 Student Council:  Irene Rm 10, Charlotte Rm 9, Laika Rm 8, Taylah Rm 8, Ahena Rm 8, Ryder Rm 10, Carlos Rm 8, Owen Rm 8 and Harley Rm 9.
