Student leadership

Student leadership helps young people find their voices, participate in decision-making, and understand their rights and responsibilities as active citizens. It helps students have a real impact on their learning and school environment and prepares them to participate meaningfully in their community.

Students can be leaders in the classroom, through their actions in the playground, through their support for others, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or local community events or projects.

Leadership opportunities at KPS

Our school has several policies pertaining to positions of student leadership. In all cases there are prerequisites for nomination and expectations if elected in relation to behaviour. If necessary students may be replaced in respective position.

House Captains

House Captains and Vice Captains are elected, according to our House Captains Policy to help organise sporting equipment and house competitions in various sports and community spirit.

School Captains

School Captains and Vice Captains are elected, according to our Captains Policy and are the school's student representatives.

Student Representative Council

The Student Representative Council (SRC) is a body within the school that represents students and promotes their views and participation in some school decision making. 

We aim to promote leadership and communication skills. The School Captains and Vice Captains and representatives from each class are selected to be members of the SRC. The SRC helps raise funds to assist charities, our main one being Stewart House. The Council also discusses various issues that come up in our school that effect students and suggest solutions.​.
