Student Leadership

Kilbreda Mentone Wellbeing

Kilbreda College is committed to providing opportunities to grow tomorrow’s leaders today.  As such, an emphasis on developing the values and skills needed to actively lead and make a positive contribution to the community is integrated into all aspects of school life.  Together with building leadership skills appropriate to their age, students are given opportunities and encouraged to share their gifts, challenge unjust structures and practice servant leadership in a variety of ways, both formal and informal.

Leadership within our own community is a strength of the College. Our students relish the opportunity to influence change, take on responsibility, be part of the decision-making process and have input into the future direction of the College. Student voice and participation are integral to student leadership at the College, with students having the opportunity to actively shape their own education through engaging, participating, leading and learning. 

For those students that aspire to lead, there are a range of primary positions that students can apply for to practice leadership including:
