Student Leadership

Students are provided with exciting leadership opportunities at Baler.  The Student Leadership Team consists of:

  • A staff Coordinator
  • Head Boy & Girl
  • 8 x Councilors who share the roles of:
    • Ministers of Well-being
    • Techsperts
    • EcoWarriors
    • Library Officers
  • 8 x Faction Captains

Students are selected for these roles through a voting process by their peers and staff.  Each student who aspires to a leadership role is provided with the opportunity to present a speech to the school community prior to voting commencing.  The voting process and self-nomination then also determines which students undergo an interview for a Head Boy or Girl position.

The BHP Partnership also enables the Head Boy and Head Girl from each Hedland and Newman primary school to participate in a leadership camp in Perth.  Students return to their respective schools and share their knowledge and skills with other students.  At Baler this involves working with the leadership coordinator and each of our councilors and captains having specific roles within the school.  Further opportunities for all councilors are also provided to work with in the community.
