student leadership

At "545" we offer students the chance to take part in leadership roles across a range of different areas within the school.

Junior School Council

Junior School Councillors are student elected leaders who play a key role within the school. Their role includes organising and conducting fundraisers for charity, representing their peers and acting as a voice for the student body if they have any concerns.  

House Captains

House Captains are elected at the start of the school year. Their role is to organise the students of their house and to lead, support and encourage the students of their house at school sporting carnivals. 

Peer Activity Leaders

Peer Activity Leaders support students in the school yard. They assist younger students with social issues and also organise activities and games for students to play.

Sustainability Leaders 

Our Sustainability Leaders are involved in promoting sustainable living practices within the school. They are involved in promoting rubbish-free lunches, as well as maintaining the school’s compost farms and vegetable garden.   

Visual and Arts Captains 

Visual and Arts Captains are elected at the start of the year. They are students who have demonstrated passion, commitment and enthusiasm towards Music and Art. Key responsibilities include informing the school of what’s happening in Music and Art, reporting on events that have occurred and promotion of upcoming events e.g. concerts, excursions. They host special events throughout the year including the Performing Arts Show, the Visual Art Show and the Christmas Concert.

Maintenance Squad

The Maintenance Squad is made up of teacher nominated students who complete ‘hands on tasks’ around the school. The Maintenance Squad responsibilities include gardening, handyman jobs and cleaning.
