Student Leadership at EDSC
East Doncaster Secondary College has worked vigorously over the past few years to build its Student Leadership profile and to ensure that we value the efforts of our student leaders and advocate for active student representation and involvement in the school community.
Students have the opportunity to select from a large number of academic and special interest clubs that run before school, at lunch and after school including:
|Table Tennis Club
|Board Games Club
|Student Voice Committee
We firmly believe that the development of a meaningful student voice is crucial within this process. We have sought to create effective structures and an open environment where students have confidence to take initiative by developing projects and ideas through opportunities such as the Student Leadership @ East Doncaster (SLED) team, and key roles such as School Captains, Vice-Captains and Middle School Captains, as well as other roles as outlined below:
|Performing Arts Captains
|Visual Arts Captains
We acknowledge that a positive learning environment is further enhanced when students feel secure, comfortable and supported. In such an environment, students are able to develop the skills, the resilience and the sense of common purpose and belonging that will enable them to grow as individuals and responsible members of that community. In short, we believe a positive learning community connects students to their school and a strong Student Leadership program is a key vehicle in allowing this to occur.
