At Northcote High School, students’ voices are respected and actively sought in our decision-making processes.
There is a wide variety of leadership opportunities for students within each year level and on the Student Representative Council, as well as numerous co-curricular roles, such as music and sporting captaincies.
Northcote High School students are active leaders within the school and in the greater community. By expanding our community partnerships, we have furthered students’ opportunities to contribute purposefully to our school and community.
Our large Music program supports student leadership in the form of Music Captains while Sport Captains assist with the staging of our Sport Carnivals, lunchtime competitions and team practices.
The Student Representative Council is led by an SRC President and a Student Executive Council. The SRC includes representatives from the different form groups at each year level. The SRC leads school projects and actively participates in school events and fundraisers while also working with the community in areas such as safety on public transport, Attitudes towards drugs, and alcohol and anti-bullying.
Throughout the school, students take on a range of leadership roles. For example, VCE students lead Changing the World at lunchtime forums, Year 10 students help run the Year 7 and Year 8 Boho Camps, Year 9 students lead community forums, Year 8 students are involved in sustainability projects and Year 7 students serve as ambassadors to visiting primary students. Over 150 students assist with the Open Day activities every year.
