All our Year 12 students collectively accept the role of leaders of the College.
While some students are elected to designated tasks in the Student Leadership Team (SLT) such as the Head Girl or SRC President, or appointed a Leader of a sport, all senior students are seen as leaders and role models, and take this responsibility seriously.
Our senior students also provide leadership in the College's Service activities, Clan competitions and in our various public ceremonies.
As Seymour College is a school that embraces principles from Positive Psychology, student leadership at Seymour College uses the PERMA (Positive Emotion, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, and Accomplishment) framework to underpin and guide the student leaders. While there is much asked of a leader at Seymour, an SLT role is also highly rewarding: it is an opportunity to make a positive and meaningful contribution to the College and student body, and it is an experience that brings with it the potential for immense personal growth.
All members of the College’s SLT are expected to:
- model the values of the College through your behaviour and dress
- maintain the traditions of the College while also being innovative within portfolios
- be an enthusiastic and caring role model for peers and for younger students
- model and encourage a positive and cooperative culture within the College
- undertake the duties required of each role in an appropriate and timely manner
- assist with tours of the College, crossing/gate duty and other duties as required
