Student leadership

All students can be considered leaders, even if they are not part of the Student Representative Council (SRC). We encourage our students to be leaders in the classroom and playground, through their support for other students, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cutural or community events and projects.

Student Representative Council (SRC)

The student representatives are selected by each year group, lead by school captains that are elected through a whole-school vote. They are a group of students dedicated to representing the student voice and also contributing productively to the school and wider community.

Within the school community the SRC run a number of initiatives they consider important. One is 'Nominate a Mate' where students nominate a friend to be recognised for their outstanding achievements outside of school that may go unnoticed.

The SRC organise fundraising events for charities they select. These are often out of uniform days with fun activities for student's to participate in.

The annual Pink and Blue Day is one of the major events in the school calendar, where students raise money for the Breast Cancer Network Australia and the Movember Foundation. Other fundraising days have included a Red and Blue Day to raise money for the HeartKids Foundation, and the Farm Fit Festival in 2018 to raise vital funds for Rural Aid's Buy a Bale initiative to help our farmers during the drought.

School Captains

Our year 11 students present their speeches in term 3 to the whole school, after which the school captains are elected. The captain's represent the school at major events like the ANZAC Day Ceremony and host assemblies and guests at the school.

NSW Premier's Student Volunteer Program

This program is an excellent initative to recognise those students who volunteer within the school and the wider community. For more information see NSW Volunteering website.
