Student Leaders

Each December, students nominate themselves for leadership positions.

Two year 6 students hold the position of School Captain - they work with different teams of students and teachers to coordinate whole-school events. They also lead whole-school assemblies, coordinate the Year 5/6 responsibilities, and lead Student Council.

Year 6 students also hold the position of House Captain in each House.  They focus on organising and leading house events, including house points days, swimming, cross country, athletics and house music competitions.

The Student Council leads and develops communication between school community groups as a way of representing the student voice. 

Student Council is made up of four sub-committees of three Year 5 students, each with distinct responsibilities:

  • School Community Partnerships - 'student engagement' e.g. newsletter, student voice
  • Governance - 'student well-being’ e.g. no hat no play, oval timetable
  • Facilities & Environment - ‘sustainability’ e.g. playground equipment, Clean Up Ripponlea days
  • Finance - ‘fundraising promotion’ e.g. Jump Rope for Heart, Halloween Fun Run.
