We believe it is the right of every student to develop a sense of self-worth through positive and appropriate leadership opportunities.



Junior School

Junior School leadership opportunities begin in Year 3. Students in Years 3 and 4 are elected to take up the position of Form Captain for a term, as a result of receiving peer support and displaying behaviour that upholds our school motto, Non Nobis Solum – Not for Ourselves Alone.

In Years 5 and 6, as a result of growing maturity and a clearer understanding of the demands of leadership, two students from each class are elected to the position of Form Captain for one semester.

Student Council Representatives are elected from each class in Years 3 to 6. Year 6 students are provided with further opportunities to display their leadership skills. Positions available at this level include Junior School Captain and Vice Captain, House Captains and Vice Captains, Student Council Representatives and Captains of Sport, Music, Performing and Visual Arts.

As members of Acacia House we endeavour to ‘Strive with Might’, to lead by example, to work together and to support each other and our local community with Love, Compassion, Forgiveness, Hope and Grace. We welcome new members to Acacia House with a smile and always show respect for ourselves and for others.

Our motto ‘Strive with Might’, was inspired by our school song and encompasses our attitude towards all in which we participate. The Acacia House mascot, the Bumble-Bee, symbolises determination and effort and all members of Acacia House know that it is possible to achieve anything as a team. Together Everyone Achieves More!

Grevillea

It doesn’t matter whether we have the best individual students, you have to have the best team. Whether we win or lose, we have unbelievable coherence and spirit. A winning spirit may face big challenges, but it draws on a source of inner strength more powerful than before; that’s why our motto is ‘From Strength to Strength’. We are bold and strong and willing to give it our best and if our best isn’t good enough, we try again; try not alone but as a team, a team that makes us proud to call ourselves Grevillea.

Tristania

Members of Tristania House have shown proud allegiance to the colour green, our totem of the green frog and our House motto of ‘Reach for the Stars’. This inspirational motto, together with stirring renditions of our House song, ‘Reach for the Stars’ and our energetic war cries, encourage all Tristanians to strive to achieve our very best in the many academic, sporting and cultural pursuits offered within the Junior School. The lyrics of our House song remind Tristanians that we should be there for each other, that we should follow our dreams and aim high in all that we do within our school and the wider community.

Middle School

A culture of leadership is encouraged through leadership positions that are structured to allow a number of girls to experience positions of responsibility and develop the skills needed to carry out these tasks in an effective manner. Leadership opportunities in the Middle School emphasise service to others, teamwork, taking initiative and developing responsibility. These may also arise through the co-curricular program including sport and cultural activities, the outdoor education program, community service activities as well as election to student leadership roles.
