Student Leadership

Student Leadership

Student leadership helps young people find their voices, participate in decision-making, and understand their rights and responsibilities as active citizens. It helps students have a real impact on their learning and school environment and prepares them to participate meaningfully in their community.

Students can be leaders in the classroom, through their actions in the playground, through their support for others, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or local community events or projects.

At Fort Street Public School, we recognise the importance of developing leadership skills in students in Kindergarten through to Year 6.

Student Leaders

Year 6 students are elected by their peers to be school leaders. These students take on a wide range of roles and lead school initiatives. They also set the standard and maintain the values of excellence, integrity and respect at Fort Street Public School.

Student Representative Council

Student Representative Council (SRC) representatives are elected from each class in the school every term.

These students meet with Executives to discuss learning, the direction the school is taking, ideas for improvement and ways to support various charities through fundraising initiatives.
