Our school offers many opportunities for students to take on leadership roles in the school environment.
The Buddy System
Year 6 students are matched up to be a “buddy” to a new Prep student at the beginning of the school year. As a buddy, the year 6 students build a relationship with their Prep friend and look out for them in the playground. The preps are encouraged to seek out their buddy if they have a problem. These relationships can last for many years with students seeing their buddy out in the community. The annual teddy bears picnic is always a highlight in the school calendar. Early in the new school year both year 6 and preps invite their families along to share a twilight picnic together in the school grounds.
To be elected as one of our house captains, of the 4 school houses any interested year 6 student must plan out and present their speech a to all students in their house in years 5 and 6, and the teachers assigned to their house. The successful girl and boy captain for each house is determined by students and teachers then voting by ballot for a girl and boy to lead their house.
A house captain’s role is to build a team feel and lead their house through various sporting events throughout the year including the junior school games and our team house sporting activities in term 3
Class captains is a new initiative to open up additional leaderships opportunities for our students. These students are nominated in the Middle Years classrooms.
Their role is to assist school captains and house captains in their roles. Class captains are voted in by their fellow class mates and class teacher.
