Introducing Our 2024 Student Representative Council

In a heartwarming ceremony held this morning, Santa Maria College proudly commissioned its student leaders for 2024. Surrounded by their families, these young students will step into their new roles from the commencement of Term 4. This momentous occasion marked the beginning of a new chapter in their educational journey and an opportunity to make a positive impact on our school community.

The 2024 student leadership team is a diverse group representing various year levels from Years 6 – 12. This inclusive approach ensures that the school’s leadership is a true reflection of the student body and encourages unity among different age groups. These leaders will play a vital role in fostering a supportive and inclusive school environment where everyone feels heard and valued.

While the student leaders for Years 6 – 12 have been officially commissioned, Year 7 leaders will be announced early in 2024. This decision allows for new students joining the school from other primary schools to be considered for leadership roles, ensuring that all students have an equal opportunity to contribute to their school community.

Being selected as a student leader is a significant achievement and a testament to the dedication and leadership potential of these young individuals. They have demonstrated qualities such as responsibility, empathy, and a commitment to making a positive difference in their school community.

As leaders, these students will face both challenges and opportunities in the coming year. They will have the chance to initiate and lead projects, organise events, and represent their peers in various capacities. These experiences will not only enhance their leadership skills but also help them develop a deeper understanding of teamwork and responsibility.
