Year 8 Leadership Program

Year 7/8 intermediate age students are the leaders and role models in a full primary school. They are seen by others in the school as the leaders and younger students to look up to them. 
All our Year 8 students will be student leaders and will have the opportunity to lead the school at different times. They will be tasked with raising the profile of their area of leadership within the school. We have developed 6 different leadership areas and all year 8 students will receive a leadership responsibility in one of these areas.
