In Term 1 of each year, students in Years 4 – 6 elect two of their class members as Student Representative Council members. This SRC executive represents the views of students to the Principal, Assistant Principals and School Council as appropriate.
The SRC also conduct 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 many other student leadership opportunities. We highly value our Sound Technicians, Student Librarians, Guardian Angels, and our Eco Warriors who work in the areas of Litter Legends, Recycling, Gardening and Re-usable products such as making bees wax wraps and shopping bags.
