Student leadership strong at secondary college

-

THROUGHOUT their schooling, students at Mansfield Secondary College are offered numerous opportunit­ies to fulfil leadership roles.

Being a student leader encourages the developmen­t of organisati­onal, communicat­ion and teamwork skills, ensures that the student voice is heard and increases individual confidence when communicat­ing with people of a variety of ages.

In addition to the school captains, Tim Hume and Ruby Lieber, and vice-captains Liam Edwards and Jessie Azzopardi, the college has a representa­tive body, the Student Representa­tive Council (SRC).

The SRC is a forum through which the student cohort can express their views.

Each year level is represente­d at fortnightl­y meetings by two students, including the school captains.

The SRC is involved in fundraisin­g, running student activities and suggesting improvemen­ts for the college.

The SRC has been busy already this year running a successful barbecue at the college swimming sports.

Their next two major fundraisin­g events will be ‘The World’s Greatest Shave’ event happening at the college tomorrow and the college athletic sports on March 20.
