Student Leadership - Grade 6 Leadership

All grades 5&6 students will be expected to be school leaders. They should behave responsibly, with integrity and support the development of others. Students in grade 5&6 should be positive role models for the whole school.

Bandiana Primary School Captains

School Captains are chosen via a democratic process. All students in Grade 6 submit nominations for the School Captain and Vice-Captain positions. Students are given the choice to accept the nomination. Students of the highest class level in the school (usually grade 5&6), the Grade 6 teacher and Principal all vote for their preferred leader. In an event of a tied vote the staff vote (Grade 6 teacher) will decide the outcome. The school selects a boy and girl captain and vice-captain. The Grade 6 teacher will tally the votes and announce the leaders for semester one. The highest number of votes awarded will be the School Captain and the Second Highest, the Vice Captain. The captain positions will be voted on again in the second semester. The Semester one captains keep their titles in addition to new leaders but do not have the same responsibilities. Current school leaders from semester one are not eligible to receive the same award twice or a lessor award, thus current School Captain’s are ineligible for Captain or Vice Captain and the Vice Captain is only eligible for Captain.

School Captain - Roles and Responsibilities

Captains should live the motto “Ever My Best”. Leaders will act with academic and personal integrity. Student leaders will demonstrate active learning by being attentive learners, participating in school events with enthusiasm, and taking responsibility for promoting the learning across the school. Leaders should respect and promote the dignity of all persons. Student leaders will respect the rights of others and act with sensitivity, consideration and understanding.
