Student Leadership

Leadership is promoted through all levels of schooling.

From Years 3 to 6, each class has two Class Representatives who feed into a larger group. This larger group of Class Representatives organises functions such as Lightning Lunches, as well as discussing and acting on issues that are important to their classmates.

Year 5 students may nominate, campaign and be voted by their peers for leadership positions in Year 6. Head Boy and Head Girl are elected for the whole year, while House, Sports, Arts and Chapel Captains are elected for one semester.

Peer Mediators are also selected from Year 6 and are trained to handle playground disputes and help students to solve their own problems.

In the Secondary School, each House elects a House Council with two students from each year group represented. Year 10 Peer Support Leaders may assist Year 7 students when they visit John Wollaston for Transition Day. The following year, the Peer Support Leaders help Year 7 and Year 8 students.

Year 10 students may assist Year 7 students when they visit John Wollaston for Transition Day while Year 11 students participate in a Peer Support programme, helping Year 8 students transition to main Secondary School.

Secondary student leaders are commissioned every year in a Whole School service at the start of Term 1, and the leadership group pledges itself ready to take on the challenges of leading the student body by example. In addition to the two Head Prefects, Prefects are elected for each House as well as specific portfolios including Chapel, Arts, Primary, Sports and Students. House Seniors are also elected to assist the Heads of House with the day-to-day running of Intra-House activities
