Student leadership

  Centenary State High School 2019 School Captains and Vice Captains

At Centenary State High School, we believe that developing student leaders and establishing positive models of student governance is of absolute importance. Our innovative and diverse leadership model provides opportunities for a variety of students to undertake leadership roles within the school.

We have implemented a system of student governance, providing students with a sense of empowerment, ownership and responsibility in school matters.  Providing a variety of leadership avenues and skill development, all students have the opportunity to develop their leadership potential.

Our Student Leaders Forum consists of two School Captains and two Vice Captains from Year 12 and Year 9 as representatives of both our Senior and Junior Schools.  The Forum also consists of four elected representatives from each year level.  The Forum is responsible for school wide decision making processes and students are involved in various committees, designed to tackle the many hands-on projects that emerge throughout the year.
In addition to these leadership roles, we also operate a House System with eight elected House Captains who help to organise and run sporting activities and carnivals, eight Arts Captains to support the range of curricular and extra-curricular Arts programs, and a Year 12 Council, designed to provide a direct link between senior students, the Year Level Coordinator and the Principal of the school.  It offers students a forum to converse directly about issues affecting senior students and initiatives to benefit the student body.
