Student Leadership - Mt Burr Primary School

Leadership Opportunies

Junior School Coaches

As part of providing a safe and enjoyable playtime, students in year 6 and 7 volunteer to be junior School Coaches. The junior coaches are rotated each term and are available to assist other students with minor issues that may occur in the yard at recess and lunch breaks.

They do this by using questions such as:

  • How can I help?
  • What would you like to do about it?
  • Would you like me to come with you?

They in fact coach the other student in how to sort out issues – “We always ask, never tell” is our motto.

School Captains

Two School Captains are elected from the Upper Primary class to represent students at various school/community functions throughout the year e.g. Rememberance Day Ceremony, Combined Pines Sports Day.
