At St Anthony’s Primary School we believe it is important for students to experience leadership opportunities during their schooling and to learn the art of building relationships. The Student Leadership Program that is offered in Year 6 provides opportunities for student voice, the development of student leadership skills and it encourages active participation in the decision making processes. Our philosophy is to prepare our students to be future leaders in the community.
At St Anthony’s Primary School we have a Buddy program. Each Foundation student is paired with a Year Six student to ensure a smooth transition into the first year of school. The children spend time together both in and out of the classroom, completing a variety of activities to build a positive and rewarding relationship.
School Representative Council Leaders (SRC) represent the beliefs and values of St Anthony’s Primary School. The role involves leadership in representing the school at community events, greeting visitors, mentoring junior students and fellow leaders as well as organising and supporting school events.
