Student leadership is an essential part of school life at Williamstown High School. Students are provided with training and support to develop important leadership skills, such as public speaking, communicating with others, and problem-solving, all which will help them succeed in the school environment and beyond.
The leadership body is student focussed and driven. Led by school captains at both the Pasco and Bayview campus, this allows for students to be seen and their voices to be heard. This approach also ensures that programs are flexible and can be adapted according to the attitudes and needs of an ever-changing student body.
This year the Bayview campus seeks to;
- highlight new and existing opportunities for student voices to foster a sense of ownership in the school
- increase student participation and engagement in the classroom and with the wider community
- renew focus on house competition to foster a sense of school pride and spirit.
There are numerous opportunities for students to get involved and make a meaningful contribution to the Williamstown High community, including the following:
Student Representative Council(SRC)
The SRC Representative works to improve the school for both students and teachers. They represent the voice of the students in their homegroup and present them to the SRC committee at regular meetings.
The role of the ambassador is to positively represent the school within the community. Ambassadors develop their leadership skills by working with the School Captains and supporting other student leaders. Our Ambassadors also take the lead on many of our fundraising adventures, organising special events and public speaking on various occasions.
