At Mary Queen of Heaven the Student Representative Council provides opportunities for student voice, the development of student leadership skills and encourages active participation in the decision making processes across the school. This will be particularly crucial as we develop our culture and set up school expectations.
We believe in equity, diversity and inclusion where all students have the opportunity to undertake a leadership position. Student voice at Mary Queen of Heaven is sort and welcomed. The following leadership positions will be held by Year 6 students.
Year 6 Leadership Positions include:
- School Captains x 2
- School Leaders
Year 1-6 Leadership positions include:
- SRC (Student Representative council) x 1 per class
Our Buddy Program encourages children from different year levels to make connections with others.
Grades are ‘buddied up’ and involve older children being paired with younger children. Planned activities between the classes are held throughout the year. Buddy classes attend whole school gatherings together.
The program aims to provide opportunities for the development of a sense of community between the whole school, the development of new friendships and leadership skills and responsibilities.
Our Buddy Program extends to our new parents, providing support and information about our school.
