Special leadership roles in the Senior College include Heads of College, prefects, student captains, Student Council leadership, and Heads of various sporting and cultural activities.
Some roles are chosen by the students’ peers and staff. Others require students to apply then go through a selection process. If you are applying for a leadership role, try to match your personal qualities with the position that suits you best.
Being appointed to one or more of these roles, however, is the easy step – becoming a successful leader is the challenge. Leadership is about getting people to gather around a shared vision and then going with them on the journey to make that vision a reality. Great leaders understand that it is not about personal glory or positions or titles. Leadership requires humility, clarity and courage.
It is important for Year 12 and Year 13 students to realise by the virtue of graduating to the Senior College they have already gained a leadership role within the school. Senior College students become role models for younger students and are a representative of St Andrew’s College every time they walk outside the school gates.

“I still remember feeling very nervous, as it was my first day in Middle School and I didn't quite know what to expect. The peer support leaders helped us settle in and feel more comfortable in our new surroundings. They also did a great job at helping us to all get to know each other, and make new friends.”
