At Poowong Consolidated School, all students are encouraged to undertake leadership roles throughout their time at the school.
Student leadership is a valuable opportunity for students to develop their skills in being leaders, organisers and active members of their community. Many formal leadership positions such as School Captains, House Captains, Student Voice and Environment Captains are eagerly filled by our students.
Each of these positions are heavily involved in supporting students in younger year levels and making links with the community. The Student Voice and Year 6 Leadership Team are active student bodies within the school.
Many students strive to become our Year 6 School Captains. It is a highly respected role, that the students take pride in. The School Captains, thank special guests for coming to our school, run the School Assembly and are active members of the Year 6 Leadership Team.
Vibrant student voice is an integral and vital part of our school community. Poowong Consolidated School students are encouraged and empowered to take an active and influential role in shaping our learning community and their own education through feedback, opinion and collaboration. Student voice is an important aspect of the daily classroom and further amplified through the Student Agency and Leadership Team (SVALT).
Year 6 students also have the opportunity to be a House Captain for one of the four school Houses. The House and School Captains assist in a variety of sporting and organisational activities throughout the school year. Leading their House in the annual Swimming and Athletics Sports competition is a highlight of their leadership role. House Captains announce progress house points at assemblies.
Poowong Consolidated School, in partnership with the community, aims to help children learn and care for each other under the school motto
“AT PCS I GROW… SO WE CAN!”.
