Student Leadership


Student leadership opportunities occur across the curriculum where students negotiate their learning and have opportunities to take on specific roles reinforcing respect, responsibility and personal best and developing their community responsibilities towards and with others.

At Settlers Farm Campus, we promote student leadership.  At the end of Year 6, students nominate to be the school "Key Holders". Students give a short speech outlining why they feel they would make a great leader and role model of the school.  A boy and girl are voted in by their peeers and begin their role in Year 7.  As a key holder the promote student voice across all year levels and oversee other student leadership groups.
