Student Leadership

At Durack School we value and promote student voice. Student leadership positions are held in high regard by the school community. Student leaders represent the school in both the modelling of standards for their peers and younger students as well as the proactive develop of activities that represent the school community.

Students have opportunities to take on various leadership roles

The role of the School Captains and Vice-Captains is to be the official representative of the whole student body at Durack School (Preschool to Year 6). They attend meetings with the Principal and others to discuss future plans for the school, as well as work towards a better school and school environment with the whole of the Student Leadership Council.
