Junior School Council is a group of student selected representatives from Foundation to Year 6 who meet weekly on behalf of the whole student body. These students plan for events and activities that raise money and awareness for both our school and charities, as well as activities that promote school connectedness. Students develop their leadership skills by planning and running these events and communicating them to the rest of the school community.
Leadership opportunities are promoted for students throughout the school at every level including Junior School Council and class monitor roles. Selected students from Level 6 hold leadership roles in the form of: School captains, Vice captains, House captains, Creative Arts captains, Japanese captains, Enviro captains, ICT captains and Library captains. Captains are not only role models within the school but they hold a number of responsibilities including organising and running activities and events, running assembly and working toward achieving goals that they have set.
The 'Green Team' is a student leadership team who are responsible for sustainability areas of the school, including Nude Food, energy monitoring and waste management. Team members participate in regular meetings and outside activities in the school grounds.
Some of their responsibilities include:
- Coordinating 'Earth Hour' and 'Earth Day' participation for our school
- Preparing and harvesting produce when necessary, making it available to the school community through a harvest
- Maintaining the watering of our school garden (with some assistance)
- Managing our school compost program with assistance from Levels 5&6 teacher and students
