Developing character and leadership is a key element of our balanced education and our students’ sense of wellbeing and belonging.
We view leadership as an opportunity to serve others. Our inclusive leadership culture connects every student and supports them to step up and serve their school and wider community from an early age.
The character of our students, especially our senior role models, is what makes the tone and flavour of our school environment so special. A wide range of formal and informal leadership opportunities are woven into the fabric of our school climate, empowering every student to get involved and explore their individual leadership capacity, to find their place and purpose and set themselves up for success post school.
Our expansive cocurricular program creates leadership opportunities as captains of different sports and performing arts activities, as well as individual representative teams, squads and ensembles.
National and international community service action includes an outreach connection and annual visit to the remote indigenous community of Nganmarriyanga in the Northern Territory and an annual humanitarian tour to Cambodia which has raised funds to build over 130 houses in its ten year history.
From Year 2 students can learn about student voice and student action on the Student Representative Council, introducing activities and facilities for their peers and supporting projects in the wider community. 20 hours of student driven community service becomes compulsory in Year 9. Our inclusive Prefect body offers opportunities for all who have demonstrated the commitment to serve by completing the Strive to Lead Diploma in the Senior College.
