We’re committed to growing student leaders and providing them with opportunities to exercise their gifts and talents, while being mentored and guided by teachers.
To be an effective leader, students need to learn to serve. With Jesus Christ as our ultimate example we offer opportunities for leaders to receive training and to serve both within the school and the community.
In addition to student captains at different levels of the school, there are also students in a range of other leadership positions (e.g. house captains) and serving on the Senate or Student Representative Council.
However, leadership opportunities are not limited to those wearing badges. We expect older students to be good role models to younger students, and we’re always looking to train and encourage students who demonstrate particular leadership potential.
Each student is encouraged and expected to set a leadership example at different stages of their school journey. They all have gifts and talents in various areas, such as academic, sporting and cultural. Our school community always benefits when students accept the leadership challenge when it comes along.
It was an honour to serve as one of the school captains in 2020, despite the many difficulties and disappointments. I’m grateful that I was still able to be involved in encouraging my fellow students through videos during lockdown.
Drouin Senior School Captain 2020
During 2020, I was able to experience leadership in a very different way, communicating and encouraging my cohort and helping each other grow in aspects of perseverance and resilience through such a tough year.
Pakenham Senior School Vice-Captain 2020
Being in leadership was a great opportunity to learn and practice leadership skills. I also had the responsibility of being a good example to the rest of the campus. I encourage everyone to try for a leadership position.
Leongatha Secondary School Captain 2020
My leadership experience was very positive but also challenging at times. I loved representing and serving my school community and fellow students by organising special events, which was particularly important in 2020.
Drouin Senior School Vice-Captain 2020
I was very grateful to be given the position of school captain. Leadership is a team effort and together we were able to serve and give back to the community. I was very happy with the accomplishments and commitment of all Senate members.
