Students are elected to the formal leadership positions of School Captains, Vice Captains, Sports House Captains and Mini Vinnies Leaders at the end of Year 5. These elections follow a process that begins with the students completing an application form and indicating why they wish to be considered for a leadership position; how they have lived out the school motto and what qualities they feel they can bring to the role.

Each year, students from Kindergarten to Year 6 are elected by their peers to be members of the school’s Student Representative Council (SRC).
