School Leaders

At St Mary’s we value and promote student voice and engagement in all aspect of school and community life. Students at St Mary’s have opportunities to take on various roles of leadership within the school community. Student voice is heard and valued through Student School Leader meetings and Student Representative Council (SRC) meetings.

Each year the School Leaders are selected from Year 6 students and their roles are:

  • Four School Captains – Captains and Vice
  • Eight Sports Captains – boy and girl from each Sports House
  • Eight Community Leaders – assigned a role as either a RE, Music & Drama, Library or Environment Leader

Role description for School Leaders:

  • form a Student Action Team with the School Captains to address the needs of the school and take action;
  • work with teachers and coordinators in particular areas on projects;
  • meet regularly to share ideas;
  • assist in running school assemblies.

The SRC assist in the promotion and organisation of special school events and fundraising such as Tree Planting Day and the St Vincent de Paul Winter Appeal.
