Student leadership at Saint Patrick’s School provides a range of experiences for individuals and groups of students to develop leadership qualities. Student leadership activities link strongly with the school vision statement, learning about citizenship and democracy while being closely linked to the curriculum. Therefore opportunities for student leadership provide a forum for student modelling of gospel values, involvement in stewardship and active citizenship.
St Patrick’s staff will guide and encourage students to build the understandings and skills of leadership through the many and varied activities of our school life. In this way students develop their individual capacity to lead and influence others in a responsible manner. Additionally, the leadership program provides opportunities for students to demonstrate their talents, skills, passions and interests. It encourages students to take responsibility for their actions while generating positive social change within the local and the global community.
