Student leadership helps young people find their voices, participate in decision-making, and understand their rights and responsibilities as active citizens. It helps students have a real impact on their learning and school environment and prepares them to participate meaningfully in their community.
Students can be leaders in the classroom, through their actions in the playground, through their support for others, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or local community events or projects.
At ASC we believe that every student should be given an equal chance to be involved in leadership and service to their school community. This experience encourages our young people to develop skills relating to teamwork, deliberation, collective decision making and public speaking.
Students who nominate for the Student Government are selected via ballot from each year-group. Each term, a new group of representatives are provided the opportunity to participate.
Student Government representatives are expected to play a crucial role in planning initiatives, monitoring their neighbourhoods, and contributing to a safe, clean and inclusive school.
