School Leadership Passports
In Term 4 students in Year 5 will be issued with a leadership passport. This passport outlines the qualities we as a school believe leaders should demonstrate. Students will have five weeks in which to get their passports signed off by staff members. Generally passports are required to be completed by Friday of Week 7.
All Year 5 students who complete their Leadership Passports will automatically be recognised as part of the Student Council for the following year and be able to nominate for the positions of School and House Captain.
Nominations for positions will be required by Week 8. Speeches and elections for Leadership Positions will be held on Friday of Week 9 with the announcement of positions to happen at the End of Year Awards Evening on Wednesday Week 10.
Only leaders elected to the positions of School and Sports Captains will receive a leadership badge during the induction ceremony. All students who complete passports will be recognised as member of the student council.
Student Leadership Position Nomination Procedures
Students nominating for official leadership positions (School and House Captains) will be required to deliver a short speech outlining why they wish to be voted into their nominated position.
In most years there will be more students nominating for school and house captains than available positions (6) so as a result some students will miss out on elected positions. It is the principal’s responsibility to discuss the policy and procedure with students prior to the nomination date of week 8.  The school should also send a copy of this policy home to families of nominating students to review the policy and procedure with them and to reinforce the message that regardless of the outcome, their contribution as a Student Council member will be valued and going through the election process is an important life learning experience.
