At our College we foster a culture that encourages and promotes young people to discover their leadership potential and develop the skills to become the change they want to be. Formal and informal leadership opportunities are offered to students from Years 7 to Year 12.
Student Leadership enables students to gain valuable leadership experience, grow in confidence, become responsible citizens and positive role models for others within the College and wider community. Salesian College Student Leaders are called to be active participants in, and share the responsibility for, the life of the College.
As part of a leadership team, each individual is challenged to:
Leadership at the College is built on the development of strong and respectful relationships between people. Being a leader means being authentic and striving to be positive and genuine in all we do.
It requires us to be present in the lives of others and to strive to
be good role models always. Being a role model is not a trivial
exercise; it means striving always to do, and to be, one’s best;

Being a Salesian leader is a genuine commitment to service and compassion, to helping and inspiring others to grow and to bringing peace and hope in the lives of others.

Teams Leaders (SAT). SAT areas are:
