Year 9 – School for Student Leadership

 



 

 

 

 

 

Leadership Programs

 

Students are more likely to develop a strong commitment to the community and its future if they are able and permitted to take part in determining its direction. Participation in decision-making at the school level is a means through which students are able to develop responsibility and experience the democratic process.

Student Representative Council

The Student Representative Council at OSC is made up of student representatives from each of the year levels. Students meet once a fortnight and report back to their classmates during assemblies and year level assemblies. The SRC undertakes a number of different roles within the school: they are advocates for issues brought to them by the student population, they seek to improve the school environment, two representatives sit on the School Council, they work on the breakfast club and barbecues, they organise socials and they fundraise for different charities.

College Captains

Nominated students make a speech to year 12 students and staff who then vote for a male and female college captain.  The democratic winners become co-captains of the college.  The roles and responsibilities of the college captains include:

House Officials

Another opportunity our sports program offers is for student to become leaders of the school houses; Lind, Cameron, MacMillan and Rowe. Students have the opportunity to become house officials which includes house captains, house vice captains and house secretaries. The roles of these officials are to help coordinate, assist and organise the inter-house sports carnivals held throughout the year. These positions of responsibility give the students an opportunity to become young leaders within the school community. 

Bus Captains

School bus captains are usually nominated by the bus drivers/operators and are generally senior students. We try to have both male and females nominated but quite often the bus drivers prefer students that have been more supportive over the years and are on the bus more often than not.

Year 9 – School for Student Leadership

An exciting part of the Year 9 program at Orbost Secondary College is the opportunity students have to be involved in the School for Student Leadership program. This program is a Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development initiative offered to year 9 students across Victoria. The curriculum focuses on personal development and team learning projects sourced from students' home region.

Student Selection Process

Students are selected from a wide range of schools and have the opportunity to spend a term at one of the three campuses located across Victoria. The Alpine School Campus is located at Dinner Plain in the Victorian Alps. Snowy River Campus is near the mouth of the Snowy River at Marlo in east Gippsland. The third site is adjacent to Mount Noorat near Camperdown in Victoria’s Western District, and is called Gnurad-Gundidj.


More information of the above school can be found at the Alpine School Website or by contacting Orbost Secondary College.
