“The foundation of a collaborative learning community is collaboration – working together for common goals, partnership, shared leadership, co-evolving and co-learning – rather than competition and power given only to a few.” Julie Boyd and Carole Cooper
Leadership is encouraged and developed in all aspects of classroom life. All the things outlined in this section play a part in helping children understand themselves, grow as learners and develop as leaders. At OLOR we want children to have the experience and to understand that every child is a leader and that leadership is a responsibility we all share. All students, be they in Kindergarten or Year 6, have an important and public role to play in contributing to the school community.
All Year 6 children will be seen as having a significant role to play as a student leader. The student leadership structure consists of:
- 2 School Captains
- 2 Vice Captains
- 4 Prefects – Social Justice Leaders
- Year 6 Leadership Teams
Year 6 become leaders in areas of
Library, Mission, Creative Arts, Sport, Sustainability & Environment, Media.
