Student Leadership

Student Leadership at St Leonards Primary School is an important initiative which enables our students to develop self-confidence and grow in their ability to be a leader. 

School Ambassadors

Our School Ambassadors are responsible for assisting the Principal in a range of duties including welcoming visitors, Principal Tours, presenting Student Awards and representing students at meetings.

House Captains
The House Captains are under the guidance of Ms Bevan and Mr Schwarz and help with team preparations for Sports Day, cleaning up the sports shed and organising new equipment. They also help with lunch time activities and support teachers and students.

Handy Helpers
The Handy Helpers assist with general odd jobs around the school including paper and can recycling. They support our Grounds Person Jim.

Canteen Champions
Under the guidance of Katrina (Canteen Manager) the Canteen Champions help during recess or lunch to serve in the canteen, providing good customer service, assisting with restocking products and tidying up.

Library Monitors
The library monitors help Kelly Peterson with supporting younger students when borrowing and helping to tidy and put things away.

Performing Arts
This team helps to set up the PA system for assemblies and assists with the organisation of the hall for performances.

To be a successful Student Leader, students need to be:

Confident: To speak clearly in meetings and on other occasions.

Persistent: To not give up when a problem or difficulty arises.

Organised: To attend all meetings and be punctual. To follow up issues at meetings.

Able to Get Along: To respect others ideas. To let others have their say without interrupting.
