Student Voice and Leadership Opportunities
At MLC School, our students are taken seriously. In both Junior and Senior School the girls have multiple opportunities to both develop their leadership skills and get involved in student-led initiatives that allow them to have their voices heard.
Student Representative Council (SRC)
Student Representative Council provides an opportunity for all students to contribute to their school. We discuss changes and improvements we would like to make to the school environment and work together to make these changes happen.
The SRC works together to ensure the voice of all students is listened to. Past achievements include organising school dances and working with the Round Square committee to run Rainbow Week, a celebration of international diversity.
Junior School Student Council (JSSC)
The JSSC representatives are elected at the beginning of each year and are the voice of the students in their class. They bring issues to be discussed at each meeting, which are then escalated to the staff and leadership as necessary.
A key responsibility of the JSSC is organising the annual Stay and Play event that fundraises for student-driven initiatives in the Junior School.
Leadership is a goal accessible for all, from Classroom Helpers of Pre-Kindergarten to Year 2, to Class Captains of Year 5, Middle Years Leadership Team in Year 8, and Year 12 House and School Captains and Prefects.
Our student leadership teams work together, trying fresh initiatives, encouraging community spirit, raising social awareness and developing cohesion, all for the good of MLC School and the girls they proudly represent.
