Student Leadership is valued at Parap Primary School. In Term 4 of each year, Primary students participate in electoral processes to decide who will be their School and House Captains and Vice Captains for the following year.
Year 5 students participate in a full electoral cycle, including formal nominations, election campaigns and speeches to constituents. Years 3-5 participate in a formal, preferential voting process.
In Term 1 of each year, students in Years 4 – 6 elect their class members of the Student Representative Council which comprises the elected members from each Primary class. This SRC executive represents the views of students to the Principal, Assistant Principals and School Council as appropriate.
It also conducts activities such as socials, various House competitions such as Athletics and Swimming carnivals and involves itself in fundraising to support different causes. All student leaders are presented with a badge of office at a formal Leaders’ Investiture Assembly.
The school also creates and supports other student leadership opportunities such as Student Librarians, Canteen Assistants, Guardian Angels, Tech Angels, Eco Warriors and Rubbish Busters.
