St Vincent’s College Ashfield encourages students to be actively involved in a wide variety of decisions and leadership roles within the school environment. We ensure that every student from K–12 develops the confidence to voice their informed opinions and the maturity to think differently and creatively. The quality of our school directly correlates with the opportunities for student voice to impact on the culture and climate of our community. In acknowledging the unity of St Vincent’s, we recognise and validate that student leadership should be present and visible in each section of our community. Our assumption is that everyone can and should exhibit quality leadership. We accept that everyone at St Vincent’s will lead in varying degrees of effectiveness, and we value each students’ contribution to our community.
Student leadership plays an integral role in the life of the college in providing aspiring leaders to contribute in a meaningful way to the development of our community. There is the opportunity for students to consolidate their skills through recognised leadership roles and portfolios.
