Leadership Roles

Whilst RJ actively encourages students to serve and lead others without the "title" of leader, there are some formal roles which directly benefit our School community.

Leadership Opportunities

Encouraging students
to become servant leaders

Captaincy and House Leaders

During Term 3, Year 5 students participate in extensive leadership training to assist them in preparing for Year 6 leadership. These students can apply in Term 4 for the Primary Captaincy roles and are interviewed by members of the School Executive and Secondary Leaders. Primary Captains and Vice Captains present weekly Primary Assemblies and Special Events. Other Year 5 students can be involved in House Leadership.

Primary Student Forum

Student Leaders from Years 4-6 are nominated by their class early each year to be representatives at the Student Forum. Student Forum meets fortnightly. Members share ideas and plan service opportunities then report back to their classes accordingly. Primary Student Forum is led by the Head of Primary with visits from the two Secondary Vice-Captains.

Various topics are discussed with suggestions regularly taken from the Forum meetings to the School Executive for consideration and approval. Many helpful changes have come about because of the Forum.

Year 6 Student Leaders also assist in the playground and at Special Events.

"What I enjoy about RJ is that everyone has a friend and that everyone is friends.”
