The School is committed to a policy of encouraging and developing student leadership at all levels through service and example. Some of the avenues open to students to develop leadership skills are as Prefects, House Captains and captains of teams, as members of the Student Council or House Committees, as sports team and cultural activity coaches, mentors and as Peer Support leaders and Mediators. Once selected the Prefects attend a leadership seminar, leadership evenings and have a range visiting speakers.
Prefects are selected on three main criteria:
- leadership skills
- quality of character
- support for the School and participation in School activities.
Prefects are appointed by the Principal, but there is canvassing of Year 13 opinion and wide consultation with staff and senior staff to help with selection.
