What does Student Leadership look like at Mt St Michael’s College?
Student Leadership at is comprised of two College Captains and a further 12 students who hold the various positions of Mission, Academic, Cultural, Sport and House Captains. Year 11 elections are held in late Term 3, to allow for transition and sharing-of-knowledge between the graduating Year 12 students and the new captains. These young women are tasked with actively and wholeheartedly contributing to and promoting our College spirit.
At our recent Year 11 Leadership Day (pictured), our Principal, Ms Volp spoke on Servant Leadership, while our Deputy Principal, Mission, Mr Campion spoke about the importance of Mission at the College. Claire Ryan, College Captain of 2016, shared with students her leadership journey. All three speakers providing very rich and pertinent information about Student Leadership.
All Year 11 students and staff are invited to participate in the election of College Captains. While not all Year 12 students may hold an official position, all students, in all year levels, are provided with opportunities to develop their individual leadership skills.
It is our aim that young women serve as they learn, so they may develop an understanding of the responsibilities that come with being part of our local - and global - community.
