Student Leadership

Student leadership opportunities are very important to the culture of St Pius X Catholic Primary School. We value each and every voice, and believe that every student has the ability to be the best leader they can be.

Students have the opportunity to take part in many school leadership teams during their final year at St Pius X. By way of nomination and speech presentation, students can apply for the positions of school captain, vice captain or member of the Student Representative Council (SRC). The whole school participates in voting for the students of their choice at the end of each year. Students can also nominate for school-based student leadership teams, including our Liturgy, Environment, Sports, Hospitality and ICT teams.
