At St Brendan’s, we aim to provide opportunities for our students to become active and responsible leaders in our school community. This includes having all students involved in our Buddy Program – Year 5 students are partnered with a Kindergarten student to ensure smooth transition to school.
We also give all students the opportunity to be nominated for an official leadership role as: School Captain, Vice-Captain, Sport Leaders, Learning Leaders, Mission Leaders, Wellbeing Leaders and Environment Leaders. Each student that is nominated for these official leadership roles is expected to present a speech in order to be voted into that specific role. See supporting document for more details.
We have a large Mini Vinnies group which draws on students from Year 3 to Year 6. Mini Vinnies is a voluntary program designed for groups of primary school students who are interested in social justice. At St Brendan’s, Mini Vinnies students get together to help those in need within their school, local or international community.
