Student Learning

Student Leadership

The Student Leadership program is an integral part of our strategy to achieve our school vision “Together we empower global citizens”.

Our school offers a diverse range of leadership opportunities including the opportunity for Year 5 & 6 students to nominate for leadership program positions. The leadership program promotes the skills, values and attitudes needed for effective leadership to make a positive contribution to our school community.

The leadership program has four components; Student Councillors; Peer Mediators; Environmental Advocates; Faction Captains and Vice Captains. Each group has a teacher mentor.

Each of these leadership groups has a slightly different but complementary focus:

Student Councillors

To develop leadership skills to improve student welfare by fostering a safe, caring environment and by presenting students’ views on the school community’s decisions.

Peer Mediators

To use mediation skills to foster a harmonious playground environment where students feel safe and respected.

Environmental Advocates

To use their collaborative and leadership skills to promote school programs that foster environmental sustainability.

Faction Captains and Vice Captains

To develop leadership and organisational skills which contribute to student welfare by promoting cooperation, teamwork and a healthy lifestyle.

It is our strong belief that student leadership is an important part of the tapestry of Rossmoyne Primary School and helps to promote our four school values of Integrity, Respect, Courage and Belonging.
