All our students are encouraged to undertake leadership roles in their classroom and in buddy class. Our Year 5 and 6 students are also given the opportunity to assume a variety of additional leadership roles in the school.
Year 6 Leaders
Year 6 students are provided with a raft of leadership opportunities throughout the year to develop their skills in preparation for high school and beyond. Assisting in the management of recycling, sports, the front office and library, assemblies, composting, gardening and IT are some of these responsibilities.
The senior students also plan and implement fundraising initiatives and special school events, and support junior students in class as buddies.
Our peer mediation program involves Year 5 students undertaking the role of mediators in disputes between peers and younger students within the playground.
The mediators received comprehensive training in conflict resolution and mediation so they are equipped with the necessary skills to interrupt conflicts in a safe manner or refer students to staff if assistance is required.
These students help organise and co-ordinate the Lunchtime Library program. They support and encourage younger students to engage in a range of activities, while modelling skills such as resilience and co-operation.
