"Education is a shared commitment between dedicated teachers, motivated students and enthusiastic parents with high expectations." Bob Beauprez
Student Leadership is about the art of motivating, influencing and directing people so that they work together to achieve the goals of a team or broader organisation. It’s important for students to experience leadership opportunities during their schooling, to learn the art of building relationships within teams, defining identities and achieving tasks effectively. It also provides an opportunity to learn to identify and display effective communication and interpersonal skills.
Koorie Leadership @ Jamo
The Stronger Smarter Student Leadership Program is based on fundamental strategies to support success for all children including:
Acknowledging, embracing and developing a positive sense of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander identity in schools.
Acknowledging and embracing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leadership in schools and school communities.
High expectations leadership to ensure high expectations classrooms, with high expectations teacher and student relationships.
Student opportunities @ Jamo
Warrnambool Primary School offers a rich program of learning that goes beyond the classroom. These programs greatly enrich student learning and are available to all students. We encourage all students to take advantage of these opportunities to further develop their knowledge, skills, relationships, and positive attitudes and values. Through these programs, students come to value the pursuit of excellence, team-work, self-esteem, and willingness to provide unselfish service to the school and community.
