The 2018-2019 academic year has started off in full swing in terms of Student Leadership at St. Joseph’s. Throughout September the students were busy campaigning to be Student Leaders for Year 7-9 and Prefects for Year 10-12. All students were required to fill in an application on how they will ‘Make their Mark’ at St. Joseph’s and then either deliver a presentation to their year group or complete an interview process. Despite there being limited positions, all students who participated were fantastic representations of the St. Joseph’s ethos. Many students highlighted their desire to become more involved within their local community; mentor younger students; and develop strategies to ensure that the school community is one that is based on positivity and mutual respect.
The Senior Student Council which consisted of: the Head Boy, the Head Girl, the Deputy Head Boy and the Deputy Head Girl, who were nominated into their roles in June, played a pivotal role in leading the Student Leadership elections. They demonstrated the utmost maturity and integrity. The positive attitude that they exuded instilled confidence in the younger students which allowed them the courage to put themselves forward for a Student Leadership role.
As a Student Leadership team, our vision is to promote positive change within both the school community and our community at large. We hope to empower the students at St. Joseph’s to become leaders within themselves and support them in understanding that they have the ability to confidently lead and create meaningful change.
