Following the election process last term, the students were successfully elected to represent the school and the voice of Wellacre.

Wellacre recognises the talent of all our students and the school empowers them with many opportunities to develop and practise leadership skills with positions including Senior Prefects, Executive Council, Anti-Bullying Ambassadors, Subject Councils, and Sport Leaders.

Student leadership at Wellacre is a central strand of student achievement, driving confidence building in order to raise aspirations.  The students encompass Wellacre’s core values of Honesty, Aspiration, Resilience and Respect in all the work they do for themselves and the school.

With opportunities for student leadership roles from Year 7 to 11, those who are appointed are strong and influential leaders who engage their peers and make a real impact on the quality of student life at Wellacre.  

Through their roles, students promote student welfare, encourage student participation, offer a forum for student voice to be heard and promote active citizenship.  They are proactive, drive change and support activities including charity drives, open evenings, events and community projects.
