Student Leadership

There are a variety of leadership opportunities for students in the junior and senior schools at St Mary’s College, either at school or House level. We believe such roles enable students to gain valuable leadership experience, grow in confidence and become responsible citizens and positive role models for others.

Student Representative Council
The Student Representative Council concerns itself with a variety of matters related to College life including service, curriculum matters, student wellbeing issues, College facilities and the organisation of a variety of social curricula activities. Students meet regularly during breaks to discuss issues as they arise.

College Captains
All year 12 students have the opportunity to nominate for the role of College Captain and Vice-Captain. The College Captains work closely with students, Heads of House and the College leadership, in the day-to-day running of the College. They are often the representative of the College at different functions throughout the year and are looked upon as role models for students to aspire to.

House Captains
House Captains are also appointed, two from each House. Their main focus is to facilitate House based activities across all key-learning areas. They are called upon to help build house spirit, coordinate and run school sporting carnivals. They are also role models for the younger students in their House.

Leadership through service
Whilst we have a number of formal leadership positions at the College, we actively promote the need for all students to demonstrate leadership by example and through service.
Many students are leaders without the formal title. Leadership is experienced through service to others in:

  • our College Outreach Programs – Rosies
  • involvement in our many Social Justice Programs, and
  • helping to organise Edmund Rice Day, House social afternoons, interschool social afternoons
  • Often leadership is simply being of service to others in the school community through acts of kindness, cooperation and support.
