School life provides opportunities for young people to develop leadership and representative skills, including as leaders in school governance.

Formal leadership and student representation programs provide important benefits for individual students and schools. Student leaders have the potential to influence the school environment and the behaviour of their fellow students by becoming advocates for positive change in the school community.

At RPS students have a variety of ways to become leaders within the school setting. The school encourages as many students as possible to participate in the leadership of the school and endeavours to share these roles among students.

It is important that students are aware of this so they can prioritise their role for the year.

These roles include:

  • SRC member (Y2-6)
  • Library Monitor (Y5)
  • House Captain and Vice Captain (Y6)
  • Ecomaniacs (Y6)
  • Peer Support Group Leader (Y6)
  • Student Executive: Prefects, Captains and Vice Captains (Y6)
