Leadership at Te Rapa Primary
Student Councillors - Future Leader's Programme
Each year, approximately 14-18 Senior students are selected by the staff to be on the Student Council. This group are similar to the Prefect system adopted by secondary schools. These students act as role models for the rest of the school as well as taking on positions of responsibility such as office duty, canteen duty, organising Discos and Socials, and acting as guides for visitors. They are Year 8 students who are groomed to be future leaders and are expected to be positive in their attitude. They can be recognised in a Student Council polo shirt, with a badge.
We also groom future leaders through many other programmes from as young as Year 5.
Responsibilities include House Leaders and Deputy Leaders, Road Patrollers, Peer Mediators, Librarians, Photographers etc.
