Student Leadership

Over the last couple of weeks, students in Years 5 and 6 interested in applying for positions of Student Leadership have been asked to complete and submit a written application addressing specific criteria. Last Friday the students who applied for a position on one of the Student Leadership teams had the opportunity to present themselves along with what they have to offer through our interview process. The candidates delivered a short presentation to their peers and select staff.


I must commend every single student who took the time to compose their application and present themselves to their peers... It takes courage to 'put yourself out there.'


Choosing our leaders is probably one of the hardest jobs we have each year as each child has a case for selection and disappointment for some is inevitable. 


To make it equitable for all, all bias is taken out of the equation and positions are appointed on the skills and attributes candidates can bring to the position at this point in time. We applaud all students who applied and congratulate those who were selected, so let's meet them-
