Student Leadership

Leadership at St. Mary’s is not defined as a role, but rather a behaviour and is based on the ‘service leadership model’ found in the Gospels.

Leadership should draw students outward, inviting them to look not just at their own needs but at those in the immediate, national and global communities. Students are encouraged to be active members of the school community by their involvement in the many extra-curricular and cross-age activities available to them during school hours.

Learning experiences are often contextualised within circumstances which lead students to recognise and identify injustices. Working collaboratively, they explore and find ways that then lead to improving life for themselves and or the lives of others.
