MOAMA Anglican Grammar’s student leaders have been officially announced.
The leaders are appointed to represent and uphold the Anglican ethos of the school in the classroom, schoolyard and wider community.
They play a major role in organising and planning of the school’s fundraising and awareness days throughout the year.
Student leaders are also tasked with making presentations at assembly, representing the school at functions, representing their year level and discussing ideas at student leadership meetings.
Coordinator of student leadership Sophie Moylan said student leaders undergo leadership training, including a student leadership day at the end of the school year, a leadership conference in Melbourne, in addition to regular meetings at school.
“The leadership role and ongoing training assist students in the development of valuable leadership skills that they can use in later life, such as working in a team, problem-solving, critical thinking, independence and effective communication skills,” she said.
“Other students benefit from having student leaders as they are provided with a vessel to have their voices heard.
“Students are also provided with a variety of valuable cultural and awareness-raising experiences planned and implemented by the school’s student leadership.”
