Student voice is an important part of our school. Our curriculum planning provides opportunities for our students to engage in leadership, to apply their learning to real life contexts and to be challenged in engaging with community and peers. This happens for any students that show leadership skills in Middle and Upper Primary year levels.
Our leadership responsibilities include
- House Captains – our two teams Meldanda (green) and Marne (yellow) are led by captains and vice captains for our swimming carnivals held at our local pool with other nearby schools, and our interschool sports day. As part of their leadership development program, they also visit and host tours to other schools and share their learning with the school. Our House Captains also represent us at any formal events such as the Premier’s Reading Challenge awards.
