All students in the Secondary School are provided with the opportunity to develop leadership skills over the course of their time in the Secondary School. The skills are taught and encouraged through the House system and in Personal Development lessons.
The more formal leadership positions are generally provided for those students in Years 9 and Years 11, 12.
Year 9 students are invited to apply for the Middle Years Captains and Middle Years Leader positions.
All Senior School students are leaders within the life of the College. Some will be formally recognised through the awarding of a position of leadership, others will serve the College in a less obvious (but no less important) manner. Younger students within the College look up to all Senior School students as examples of the best way to conduct themselves. This places the responsibility of leadership within the College on all Senior School students, and consequently all Year 12 students will be entitled to wear a senior badge on their College uniform.
Student leaders at St Andrew’s Anglican College are appointed by the Principal in the roles of College Captains, House Prefects or College Prefects.
