At St Francis Xavier College, there are many opportunities for students to develop leadership skills and to participate in leadership activities. This document outlines those opportunities, the role descriptions for each position, as well as the process for nomination and election.
Student Leadership within the College is overseen by the Deputy Principals/Heads of Campus at Berwick, Officer and Beaconsfield.
The main bodies for student leadership in the College are the Student Leadership Executive, the House Executive on each Campus and the Student Representative Council (SRC). Leaders are selected by an election process which is closely overseen by the Heads of Campus.
The Leadership Executive is made up of the College Captains, Vice Captains, Liturgy, Justice, Sports, Arts, Debating, Environment and Yearbook Captains, comprised of Year 12 students. At our Berwick and Officer Campuses, we have Campus Captains, Liturgy, Justice, Sports and Arts Captains, comprised of Year 9 students.
The House Executive on each Campus is made up of the 16 House Captains, usually a male and a female from each House in either Year 9 (Berwick and Officer) or Year 12 (Beaconsfield). Each House Captain supports the participation of all students in the College House Program, which incorporates sport, art and debating activities.
The Student Representative Council (SRC) is the main body for raising and addressing issues and ideas of interest to students. Two representatives are elected from each House from Years 7 to 9 and Years 10 to 12.
