At Carlisle Adventist College all students are encouraged to develop their leadership skills in order to support fellow students and to benefit the wider community. Opportunities to develop these qualities are provided through a range of learning experiences as well as student leadership roles such as school captain, sports captain and student representative council (SRC).
Student Representatives and Captains are expected to be ambassadors who embody the school values and school mottos. Their duties range from public speaking at school events to active involvement in school activities, and encouraging the involvement of other students. School leaders are elected by the student body to represent them and act as an organisational team representing all students.
Regardless of whether a student is elected into a representative role or not, each student will be offered an opportunity to display leadership in other ways such as a buddy system where older students are ‘buddied’ with younger student to offer guidance and support.
