Student Leadership

Student Executive and House Captains

All positions on the Student Executive are gained by application, preliminary shortlisting by the appropriate Dean, Deputy Principal and Principal (depending on numbers), voting by the students (at their year level) and staff. The Principal reviews and confirms the results which may involve individual interviews with the Principal, Deputy Principal and Dean.

Leadership training for the Student Executive and House Captains begins every year with a training camp and a team building day. Mrs Gabrielle Clark, Deputy Principal, is in charge of overseeing all their activities.
