Dr Benn
Head of Junior School

The Year 6 student leaders have been very engaged in their roles this term. The inclusive leadership program enables all senior girls to voluntarily contribute to service roles in areas that interest them. Including students’ voices in making decisions contributes to a positive culture, increases engagement, and helps build a sense of belonging and connection to others. During the year, student leaders organise focus weeks and activities to help other students explore what it means to be responsible citizens who care for people and the environment.

This term, highlights of the student leadership program have included National Science Week activities led by the STEM Team, Book Week celebrations organised by the Library Team, and Compassion Week activities arranged by the House Leaders. The Healthy Lifestyle Team also promoted the importance of nutrition. To further equip the girls with leadership skills, the SCG Team attended a CruFit training session at Trinity Grammar’s Preparatory School and the Prefects presented their focus week activities at the IPSHA Social Action Expo.

It has been encouraging to see the Year 6 girls use their leadership roles to help Junior School girls think about how they can care for and serve others.
