Student leadership

Clinton State School offers an extensive leadership program for our senior students.  We embrace the philosophy that each and every senior student is a leader and we foster leadership skills in all of our senior students, by providing a range of programs and opportunities to develop these skills. 
In 2018, our school in partnership with the Midday Rotary Club established a Rotakids Club.  Motivational speakers who inspire students to aim high and work to achieve their dreams, helps each child clarify their individual journey for success.
As our students move towards their last year of primary school, we implement a six month leadership program for all students explicitly teaching and modelling leadership skills.
Aspiring student leaders nominate for leadership positions in Term 3, via a nomination form.
Leadership positions available are:
  • School and Vice Captains
  • Cultural Leaders
  • Student Council Leaders and members
  • Green Club Leaders
  • Music (Band and Orchestra) Leaders
  • House Captains
Aspiring leaders must complete a nomination form.  Students are then selected to move to the next stage of the leadership process by undertaking an interview with members of the school leadership team and current student leaders.  Students are then shortlisted to give a speech to demonstrate why they would be an exemplary leader and demonstrate leadership, communication skills, teamwork skills in Term 4.  Student Leaders are announced in Term 4, with our Induction Ceremony taking place early the following year.
Our Student Leaders run our Student Council, which implements major initiatives, such as Caring for Our Clinton Family, Kindness Day and Saying No Way to Bullying each term.  They compere whole school events, talk on daily assemblies, assist with sports carnivals and musical concerts.  Students are offered an array of opportunities to demonstrate leadership in their final year at Clinton.
