Leadership is a quality that all students at Banyan Fields Primary School are encouraged and supported to develop. Students from Foundation to Year 6 take on the role of leaders of their own learning. Through the curriculum and extra curricula activities, all students are encouraged to develop the skills necessary to be a leader. This ensures that all students perceive themselves as leaders and have the opportunity and confidence to take on leadership roles.
School Captains are leaders of the student leadership team who support the school's leaders (Principal, Assistant Principals, Leading Teachers and Level Leaders) in delivering the school priorities. They develop student presence and voice within the school community and lead the student community in demonstrating citizenship throughout the school and across the wider community.
• Act as student leadership representatives at events such as assemblies, whole school events and events where BFPS are represented to the wider community. Conduct tours of the school for special guests. Attend and represent the school at extra-curricular events (e.g. concerts, award nights, ANZAC ceremony) and other events that may arise during the year as advised by Principal/AP.
• Independently investigate and develop other potential leadership opportunities, meeting as the need arises to organise events and develop self-devised leadership roles.
