St Paul’s aims to provide opportunities to develop and cultivate leadership qualities within all students. We aim to instil in students, a strong sense of social justice through the service of others.
St Paul’s gives all Year 5 students the opportunity to be nominated for an official leadership role as School Councillors and House Captains. Each student that is nominated for these official leadership roles is expected to present a speech in order to be voted into that specific role. All Year 5 students participate in the Rock ‘n’ Water resilience and self-awareness program as part of their preparation for student leadership
The school councillors perform a number of ceremonial roles on special occasions. They raise the flag each morning, run Friday morning assemblies and represent the school at special ceremonies such as Catholic Schools Week mass, ANZAC Day and Diocesan Mission Week Mass. They meet and liaise often with the Year 6 teachers and principal. The leaders are responsible for setting a good example of being responsible, respectful and safe at all times.
House Captains have responsibility for the care of sports equipment and maintaining house enthusiasm in sporting activities.
