In keeping with our lighthouse theme, our Student Representative Council members are known as Lighthouse Keepers.
Two Lighthouse Keepers are elected to represent each class for each semester every year. All LHK class reps for the year are inducted at an assembly at the start of the year. Light House Keepers meet regularly, raising class based issues to be discussed, providing feedback and developing proposals for staff and Governing Council about a range of issues.
We also have a Lighthouse Keeper Executive, that is made up of Year 7 students. The Executive play an important role at the school, acting as positive role models, being involved in decision making, assisting in running assemblies and leading student voice in key areas including Safety and Wellbeing. All LHK Executive and Leaders are inducted at the AGM each year.
All Year 7 students also participate in a School Leaders program. Four teachers train Year 7s in skills of communication, teaming, listening, problem solving etc. They then work with small groups of students in all classes across the school to develop and embed a range of initiatives. In 2013, the focus has been on the implementation of the Values throughout the school.
All older classes are also buddied with a younger class. The buddy classes meet regularly to engage in a number of activities to develop positive relationships between older and younger students. Buddy classes present one assembly a year and may also participate in other activities together.
