Student Leadership

There are many opportunities for students to develop and show leadership skills at Catherine McAuley. Whilst some students are elected by their peers and teachers to leadership positions, every student is encouraged to show initiative and leadership and to be an ambassador for Catherine McAuley.

School Leaders are elected from Years 10 and 11 by their peers and teachers during Term 3 and are officially inducted at the Mercy Day Mass. From this group are elected the School Captains, the Liturgy, Social Justice, Culture, Environment, Hospitality, Sport, Technology and House Leaders.

Student Representative Council

The Student Representative Council is elected by students and represents all year levels.

The SRC strives to give students a voice in the extended school community. Their aim is to represent students’ interests in a manner that is beneficial to the whole school community.


Peer Support Leaders

All Year 9 students are trained as Peer Support Leaders during Term 4. After training, students are invited to nominate themselves as Peer Support Leaders for the following year. Approximately 40 students are selected from this group.

Peer Support Leaders help with the transition of the new Year 7 students into secondary school life. During Term 1, Peer Support Leaders meet with their groups once a week. After this, the groups and their leaders meet on an informal basis. Leaders are always available to help individual members of their group.
