Each year we offer our grade 6 students an exciting opportunity to be part of our student leadership team. At the end of the year, the grade 5 students’ work on developing a speech that is presented to their school peers, explaining why they would make a wonderful school leader. Each child in the school has an opportunity to cast their vote to appoint our student leadership team.
The leadership roles are modified each year to ensure each child has an area of expertise they can share and to guarantee all students have a leadership role. 2019 roles are School Captains, Vice-Captains, Sport Captains, Wellbeing Co-ordinators and the Media Team.
Our year 5 students are also provided with leadership roles within the Junior School Council. The roles involve co-ordinating Junior School Council Days which occur each term. The whole school is involved in the Junior School Council days where students dress up and participate in fun activities run by the JSC members.
Debating is offered to students in Grade 5 and 6. Debating is optional and students compete against other schools in Geelong. The students get the opportunity to develop their public speaking skills, practice using persuasive devices, thinking on the spot and writing convincing speeches.
