Student Leadership

Three College Leaders are elected each year as the student leaders of the College. Students in this position are members of the Student Representative Council and are involved with College Assemblies, functions and events.

The Student Representative Council allows the student body to make positive and constructive suggestions to Administration for the overall good and advancement of the College. The Student Representative Council is chaired by a College Leader and is made up of elected representatives from Years 7 to 11, two students from each House and elected chairs of each of the Year 12 Committees (Christian Leadership, Community Service/Peer Support, Cultural and Publicity). All students are encouraged to approach the elected representatives to suggest improvement to the College resources, facilities and curriculum.
