Participation in student leadership is also strongly encouraged to promote a student voice and enable participation in the decision-making processes within the College. As a Catholic College in the Tradition of Edmund Rice – our ultimate model of leadership is Jesus Christ.
The St Edward’s College Be the Voice student leadership program provides aspiring student leaders with a supportive learning environment where students are challenged to work cooperatively to achieve set goals, respect themselves and others, inspire and motivate their peers and, promote a culture of school pride and belonging.
The newly elected Student Representative Council will undertake significant leadership roles as well as providing a voice for the student population and the broader St Edward’s College community. In 2021 there will be eight students per year group appointed to the positions of Student Representative Council. Each year group will focus on a theme that promotes a healthy lifestyle, mental health, and positive behaviours. In addition, students will also work in collaboration with the Perfects as members of the College portfolio initiatives.
