Student Leadership at Henderson College

"Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other". - John F. Kennedy

A core part of our curriculum at Henderson College is our innovative student leadership model. We aim to develop leadership skills in students from Year 3 up to Year 10.

 

School Captains

School Captains (High School) and Prefects (Primary School) are chosen after a robust application and interview process.  The Captains and Prefects work as part of a wider leadership team to oversee spiritual, social and fundraising activities at the school.

 

Student Representative Council

The SRC are made up of two representatives from each year level from Years 3-10.  Each class votes on two representatives from each year level.  The SRC is run by the School Captains and Prefects, along with a teacher mentor.

 

House Captains

Each house elects their captains and vice-captains at the start of the year.

 

Buddies

Henderson College runs a Buddies Program for students across all year levels in the Primary school.  Students’ are vertically grouped across the Primary school with a Year 5/6 student acting as the leader during a weekly 20 min combined activity.

 

GRIP Training

Each year, a selection of our school leaders to go on a training course with GRIP- an independent values-driven organisation that trains and develops school leaders.
