Student Leadership

Student leadership

Student leadership helps young people find their voices, participate in decision-making, and understand their rights and responsibilities as active citizens. It helps students have a real impact on their learning and school environment and prepares them to participate meaningfully in their community.

Students can be leaders in the classroom, through their actions in the playground, through their support for others, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or local community events or projects.

For more information about opportunities in NSW public schools, visit Student voice and leadership.

We create opportunities for our students to meet their interests within and beyond the classroom through our extrcurricular activities, leadership and volunteering programs and wellbeing and academic camps and overseas trips.

Through these experiences, our students develop an individual identity and acquire a sense of social responsibility and connection to their community at a local, regional and global level.

These opportunities create a closer connection for our students to our school. This has a positive impact on their academic achievement.
