Cerdon College aims to:
- Provide a variety of opportunities for development of leadership for all members of the Cerdon College community.
- Foster a culture of leadership within the College.
- Promote and encourage active and inclusive participation by the whole school community in the College’s decision making process.
There are many opportunities for student leadership at Cerdon College.
From Years 7-10 each class has a Class Captain, Vice-Captain and Missions Promoter.
Year 10 students are voted as House Vice-Captains.
Students from Year 11 are elected as Class Prefects and as House Captains for each of the four Houses; while also having the opportunity to become Social Justice Committee Members and Library Monitors.
College Leaders are elected from the Year 11 cohort in Term 3 of every year and take over the leadership of the school once Year 12 leaves to commence their HSC examinations.
The Student Leadership team consists of the School Captain and four Vice-Captains for the areas of Academic, Sport, Social Justice & Community Service; and Creative & Performing Arts.
The College’s Student Representative Council is a very active group in the school. All class captains meet with the Student Leadership team and staff representatives on a regular basis to debate issues and raise concerns. They have been instrumental in initiating change at a whole school level.
The College has a strong Peer Support Program for Year 7 students. At the end of Year 9, all students are trained in leadership through the Peer Support Program with students then being selected as Peer Support Leaders for Year 10. These leaders work closely with the Year 7 students to help them settle into life at the College.
