Student Leadership

square microphoneThe distributive leadership model in operation at St Patrick’s places Stage 3 students in senior leadership positions including:

  • Student Representative Council - School Captains and elected Year 6 students
  • Sports Teams - House Captains and Equipment Monitors
  • Mission Support Team - nominated Year 6 students working with Religious Education Co-ordinator
  • Bus Monitors - Stage 3 students

Students are invited to nominate for positions, to prepare written and oral presentations and to be part of a democratic election process for selection to prime leadership roles. All members of Year 6 are encouraged to realize their leadership capacity and are required to fulfill some form of leadership function within the school.

Stage 3 students are supported in the development of leadership skills in a three day Leadership Camp held at Stanwell Tops Conference Centre and through engagement in Peer Support Training.

Through the operation of the following leadership roles, students at St Patrick’s continue to make a positive contribution to the climate and culture of their learning community:

  • Mission Support Team
  • Welcome Ministry
  • Class Prefects - elected each Term in grades K-5
  • Games Monitors
  • Library Monitors

These positions allow students to take an active role in the decision making process and in the life of their school.
