Leadership 2013

The Student Representative Council - SRC now the Student Governance Group with Jacqui Ockwell the teacher working with them.

Student Leadership at Narrabundah College

In two key areas students have opportunities to develop leadership skills and for personal growth – The Student Governance Group, the Peer Education Group and through a range of broader community, charitable and political organisations.
Roles
The Student Governance Group replaces the standard SRC and is central to all student activities at the college. They will meet with the Principal regularly to discuss any issues with the governance of the college and will be involved with events at the college. They represent all students at Narrabundah College and seek to make improvements to the school community.
The Peer Education Group focuses on health education and student wellbeing at the college. Students are trained in issues including: mental health, communication skills, alcohol, drugs, sexual health, bullying and First Aid. Working under the slogan, “Ask Me” they participate in Orientation activities for new year 11s and will act as “first stop” agents for the student body if they are approached with problems. They deliver key health messages to the student body through our N-Group program and both refer students to and inform the school’s welfare section if they hear of concerns.
However, a range of opportunities also lie outside these two groups. The following list gives an indication of some of these opportunities. Credit for significant involvement will be recorded on the Year 12 Certificate. While the curriculum, assessments and classroom interactions are pivotal to student academic and personal development, it is through extra curricula activities such as these listed that students develop a better understanding of themselves and the world around them. We encourage all students to take on this challenge and become involved with at least one leadership or community activity during their two years at the college.
