At Liddiard Road Primary School, we believe students need to be at the centre of their learning and should have true ownership of their school. Students are given opportunities to have input into decisions, voice concerns and make suggestions to improve their school, as well as becoming more aware of the wider community.
Leadership is integral to lifelong learning. All students should have the opportunity to demonstrate and develop leadership skills. Student leadership roles include School Captains, House Captains, Student Representative Council members and Respectful Positive Learner Team members.
Junior School Council
The Junior School Council is made up of students from Years 3-6. Students participate in fortnightly meetings to give students an opportunity to not only share views, but also have input into decision making. The JSC organise and run school activities such as fundraising days/events and special assemblies. They also participate in leadership development sessions and are actively involved in the composition of lunchtime activities. Every other fortnight the students visit a local aged care facility. These visits have been successful in developing relationships, promoting social skills, and developing a sense of civic responsibility.
