Student Leadership is an important part of life at Lakes Entrance Primary School. During Term Four Year 5 students have the opportunity to apply for Student Leadership positions for the following year. They complete a formal written application and are interviewed by current student leaders and the Principal. Once this process is completed background checks are done based on the potential leader’s day to day history as outstanding students. At the final Civics and Citizenship meeting for the year there is a “handover” ceremony whereby the current leaders announce their successor and wish them well.
Currently our student leaders include House Captains, School Captains, Junior School Council Executives and Koori Leader. LEPS Student Leaders represent our school as ambassadors at local community events such as the Anzac Ceremony and other important local events and set a great example as students every day. Throughout the Grade 6 year they become very capable organisers and presenters at our Friday assemblies.
We are very proud of our student leaders and the positive impact they have across our school community.
