STUDENT VOICE AND LEADERSHIP
Students at the school at the end of each year elect representatives School Captains and Vice Captains (depending on the number of students at Year 6 level).
In 2017, with no students at the Year 6 level, students decided that they would use this time to develop and implement their leadership skills as a team.
These students are involved in a range of roles to develop leadership skills.
Leadership roles may include:
- writing a column for the school newsletter
- presenting whole school assemblies – this includes organising the agenda, liaising with staff and students providing an opportunity to many students to practise public speaking
- organizing fundraisers for school and community projects. The may include Casual Dress Days, Wacky Hair Days and a variety of student instigated fundraising ideas
- designing the Year 6 top for the year
- assisting with showing parents and prospective students around our school
- greeting visitors
- organizing tabloid sports for the rest of the school
- thanking guest speakers at Cluster events
- working one on one with students in the junior classes displaying a nurturing big brother, big sister relationship with the students
Leadership skills are developed through
- Leadership Camps (when available)
- GRIP Leadership Conference: gripleadership.com.au
- Transition Days as part of the Ovens Learning Community Cluster of schools
