At Caloundra, student leadership is an integral part of student operations in Years 5 and 6 providing the opportunity to recognise model students and develop leadership abilities.
Our aim is to raise the leadership profile and expand the leadership paradigm to more students at Caloundra to increase our leadership capacity and focus students in more year levels on maintaining high levels of achievement and behaviour.
We believe that if effectively implemented, a strong student leadership program has the potential to positively affect student attendance, behaviour and in-turn learning outcomes.
To achieve this, the leadership program:
is actively managed by a staff coordinator and the Student Council
has a significant and meaningful responsibility and rewards structure
is actively supported by all members of the Caloundra community
is available to students in Years 5-6

The function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers. (Ralph Nader)
