In Years 7–12, the skills and understanding that leadership opportunities develop, are integral to each student’s experience of the Secondary School. Whether it is leading a Chapel Service, captaining a sporting team, raising money for a not-for-profit organisation or forming a band to perform at a lunchtime concert, there are a myriad of opportunities available that are supported and encouraged by both students and staff.
The Student Representative Council (SRC) operates for students from Years 3-12. Peer elected representatives meet regularly to discuss issues and work with the school on matters of interest to students. The Chairpersons are the Year 11 representatives, who were elected to the SRC in Year 10.
Co-curricular activities such as Model United Nations Assembly (MUNA), Year 11 Community Involvement, the Ravenswood Environmental Protection Agency (REPA) and Cadets, to name just a few, also provide further opportunities for students to take on leadership roles.
By the time students reach Year 11 and their peers and teachers are able to identify their strengths as leaders, they may nominate themselves for a commissioned leadership position for the final term of Year 11 and the first three terms of Year 12.
