At Star of the Sea College, student leadership is built upon the guiding principles of gospel values and Presentation charism. Students are encouraged to lead through service to others rather than self-promotion.
Students are encouraged to lead through service to others rather than self-promotion.
All leadership is linked with promoting social justice within and outside the College, and leaders are to present themselves as positive role models at all times. Each student has an opportunity to develop their innate leadership abilities through the structure of elected positions of responsibility across the year levels and Houses.
Through these positions, students learn how both power and control carry significant responsibility for the whole community.
