At University Park Primary School student leadership provides an opportunity for our students to actively participate in the decision-making processes of the school. At the beginning of each school year students are elected by the student body to take on the leadership positions for that year. Students are encouraged to take on leadership roles in an endeavour to increase their own leadership skills and to act as effective role models and mentors for the student body. We believe that encouraging student leadership ensures we are developing responsible community leaders of the future.
The following leadership positions are offered to all students in grades 3-6:
Our student leaders are provided with opportunities to increase their skills in aspects of leadership through attendance at special events such as the National Young Leaders Day as well as on-site training with experienced school staff.
The Student Leadership Policy can be found in Policies.
