Leadership Program

At Holy Family Catholic Primary School training in leadership begins in the classroom and develops as students progress through the school. It involves formal leadership programs and practical leadership experiences.

The approach recognises that students can be leaders across many different areas and that leadership skills learnt in primary school can lay the foundations for future leadership opportunities.

Student Leadership

At Holy Family the Senior Students are school leaders and act as role models for the younger children.

All children in years six and five are leaders and it is expected they will take on extra responsibilities. As well as this, some children from year six are chosen through a process of discernment by students and staff to take leadership positions for the year.

These positions are:

  • School Leadership Team
  • House Leaders
  • Library Leaders
  • Band Leaders
  • Social Justice Leaders

A range of other leadership opportunities are available to students. These include:

  • Student Representative Council (SRC)
  • Class Meetings
  • Buddy Program
  • Fundraising Initiatives
  • Public Speaking
  • Presenting or performing at assemblies and official functions
  • Meeting and guiding visitors around the school
  • Introducing and thanking visitors
