Lillian Harding Bradburn
These elected students will be guided and managed by the Primary School staff so that they grow in confidence and ability in order to perform their duties creditably. The leaders have the opportunity to participate in a number of leadership workshops throughout the year both within the school and with Primary Leaders from other schools.
These are excellent learning experiences for the students as they learn important skills to assist them in their leadership roles within the Primary School; such skills as communication, teamwork, conflict resolution and role modelling. Throughout the year, the students are educated about the need to grow in knowledge and practical skills of leadership. It is expected that the students will make a positive contribution to the Primary School.
Primary School Student Council
The Student Council within the Primary School is an important leadership group, as it gives the students greater participation in the decision making process and functioning of the school. Members of the Student Council are able to have a forum to discuss any issues which have been raised in class discussions, as well as being an avenue to discuss general school issues.
The aim of the Student Council is to:
- Represent the student body
- Provide a means for the students to express their opinions as to how
- the school could improve
- Co-ordinate the student activities within the school
- Develop a sense of community service amongst the student body
- Provide feedback to the students, staff and wider school community on
- relevant issues, activities and decisions.
- Report to the student body at relevant assemblies
It is important to structure and organise the St Andrew's Anglican College Primary School Student Council so that it becomes an effective and efficient committee within the school. Therefore, for this to occur, the members of the Student Council need to have a strong understanding of and commitment to the aims and principles of the Council. Therefore, the Primary School Student Council will consist of elected representatives from Years Four, Five and Six.
The following will be the members of the Student Council:
- Primary School Boys' Leader
- Primary School Girls' Leader
- Primary School Assistant Boys' Leader
- Primary School Assistant Girls' Leader
- One male from each class in Years 4, 5, 6
- One female from each class in Years 4,5,6
Years 1 - 3
Whilst not being official members of the Student Council, the students of Years One, Two and Three will still have opportunities to have input into the Student Council. One male and one female per class in Years One, Two and Three will be elected as Class Leader. Students will be chosen for these positions on a rotational basis at the start of each Term. Should a class leader wish to attend the Student Council meetings, they are able to attend and provide input.
The Primary School Student Council will meet each fortnight, the day being determined by the co-ordinating staff member.
