The challenge of leadership is an important part of our students’ learning experience. It is held in very high esteem in our community and is recognised on many occasions throughout the school year.
At MacKillop, we encourage leadership through vision, collaborative planning and action.
Our student leadership structure at MacKillop is detailed below:
Senior Student Leadership Team
Our Student Leadership Team is made up of Year 10 students who fulfill the following positions: 2 College Captains, 2 Deputy Captains and 8 House Captains.
The Student Leadership Team meets to discuss student issues, plan events and decide upon organisational matters. The Student Leadership Team is responsible for school tours, leading whole school assemblies, initiating student-led projects, contributing to School Improvement forums and projects, co-ordinating our Feast Day celebrations and JJAMM Week as well as mentoring SRC members through the Vertical Leadership Program.

In Year 7-9, students may nominate to have the opportunity to be elected to the Student Representative Council (SRC). There are two SRC members elected from each Tutor Group.
