development of leadership skills will benefit children now and into the future.
As such we provide and promote opportunities for students to develop those
skills and actively participate in their school life.
The student council is comprised of ten
female and ten male year 6 students nominated by their class. Council members
regularly meet with the senior Deputy Principal, and work on projects
identified by students as important. The council also nominates charities to
support and school improvements to make, which they fund through various school
fundraisers they coordinate throughout the school year.
House Captains are nominated at the end
of the year 5 school year, with successful candidates stepping into their
elected role in year 6. One female and one male student will each be chosen as
House Captain and Vice Captain to represent their school’s sporting houses.
Buderim Mountain State School has four sporting houses, each named after an
aboriginal word for a sporting activity; Iterra, Cheropin, Walla and Yuamala.
School Captains and Vice Captains are
also nominated through a peer voting process at the end of year 5, after giving
speeches and going through a campaign process. One female and one male student
is chosen as School Captain and Vice Captain.
