Student leadership

Each year, students in year 5 are eligible to apply for leadership positions for the following year. 
We believe Student Leadership:
  • Promotes the needs and interests of students.
  • Enhances the role of students.
  • Recognises the positive role students play in the development of a supportive school environment.
  • Provides opportunities for students to be involved in school decision making.
  • Adds to the climate and ethos of the school.
Leadership is a developmental process, and our Student Leaders should be guided as they:
  • Provide an active and supportive role in student issues.
  • Provide a role model for all students.
  • Represent the school on official occasions.
  • Assist other students to achieve their best.


All students in the uppermost classes at Esk State School are viewed as student leaders, though leadership positions are offered only to year 6. This recognizes that as the oldest students in the school it is their opportunity to take on the added responsibility and develop their potential for leadership. 
Badges will be presented to students who fill the official leadership roles of School Captain, Sports Captain, Music Captain and Student Council Captain.
