Student Councillors - Future Leader's Programme
Each year, approximately 14-20 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.
Hi I’m Jessica, I’m 11 years old. I live at home with my parents and siblings. We also have a dog. My extended family is diverse because my grandad is maori on my dad’s side, my great grandmother is from Solomon Islands and my soon to be aunty is from Colombia. My best subject is maths and my best achievement is becoming a student councillor. I enjoy playing board games and cards and also enjoy doing puzzles with my family. My best achievement outside of school is being in the talent show when my family went camping. When I leave school my ambition is to be a worldwide known chef. My dream is to be the next Nigella Lawson.
