Student Leadership

Leadership development is based on nurturing creativity, inspiration and service. At Prince of Peace, leadership is based on a model of ‘servant leadership’, where students are encouraged to identify their strengths, exercise their talents, serve the community and realise their dreams.

 

Student Leaders

Our Leadership Development program aims to help our students recognise and develop their leadership skills through a range of service-based opportunities supporting the College and the broader community.

Our students play a major role in growing and nurturing Prince of Peace Lutheran College’s commitment to honouring relationships.

The Leadership Development program aims to develop leadership qualities, seeks to unite students across year levels and fosters caring relationships throughout the College. These relationships will, in turn, nurture a ‘service-learning’ environment that allows for positive and supportive connections to be made.

Key leadership opportunities at the Junior Campus occur at the following points of a student’s school career at:

  • Junior School and House Captains (Y6)
  • Music captains (Junior)
  • Library monitors (Y6)
  • the Year 6 Parliament
  • the Enzyme Project (Y6)
  • various ‘buddy’ programs where older students support and mentor younger students

The College is deliberate in providing opportunities for leadership learning to occur as part of the formal curriculum. It is our hope that all students develop their leadership skills, demonstrate service and feel that they have a voice. We believe all students are called to use their gifts to serve God and their communities and that all students are leaders, regardless of whether they hold a formal leadership position.

 


 

Year 6 Leadership Program

“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” (John C Maxwell)

At Prince of Peace, leadership is based on a model of ‘servant leadership’ where students are encouraged to identify their strengths, exercise their talents, serve the community and realise their dreams.

Our Year 6 students encounter so many opportunities to lead and serve others throughout the school year.

Many take on responsibilities such as leading clubs, helping to run the Prep-2 Athletics Carnival, book-reading to the younger students, helping out with Library Monitor duties, and promoting positive environmental practices as part of the Recycling Group.

 


Buddy Program

Nurturing is an aptitude valued by the Prince of Peace community, something we aim to have consistently modelled by our teacher—however nurturing is also about students learning to be there for each other.

Our formal Buddy Program, which matches older and younger children across a range of year levels, encourages students in their development of important life-skills such as compassion, patience, communication and leadership.

Connections are established between the following year levels:

  • Year 12 and Year 1
  • Year 12 and Year 7
  • Year 10 and Year 5
