Student leadership

Leadership skills are highly valued and nurtured at Tare Point PS. Students have a number of opportunities to show these skills throughout the year with in school programs, fitness groups, buddy and peer support programs, external events including Leadership by the Bay and local high school partnerships. The major leadership opportunities are within the Student Representative Council (SRC).

The SRC comprises of two representatives from each year and is led by the Student Leaders (School Captains and Vice Captains). They act as ambassadors for the school and role models for other students. Students who take part in the SRC gain valuable experience in leadership and sharing responsibility which enhances their later careers.

The SRC represent student views and meet weekly to discuss issues and concerns from the student body, advising the principal on student matters and works with the school community to implement new ideas and procedures.

Our SRC have been involved in a number of leadership initiatives including the review of school bell times and the school uniform, charity fundraisers , Grandparents’ Day and fortnightly assemblies. Their fundraising efforts have funded ‘The Bike Stop’ (bicycle parking for the children who ride to school) and their mufti days have raised monies for a wide variety of charities that include Bandanna Day and Pirate Day for Kids Cancer and Fiver for a Farmer for Rural Aid.

Their efforts are not limited to fund raising but are motivated by goodwill and good health. They have put together packs for our armed forces overseas and organise breakfast for ’Walk Safely to School Day’ every year. Building on TPPS being a Crunch and Sip school the SRC have introduced Nude Food Tuesday. An initiative that will see children joining the war on waste by bringing their food to school without unnecessary packaging.
