At Lincoln Primary School we value the importance of providing students with leadership opportunities that will foster a variety of leadership skills and attributes, while promoting a sense of belonging and connectedness. The school values of Honesty, Excellence, Respect, Openness, Empathy and Self-management are also an integral part of our student leadership programme.
The leadership opportunities currently available to Year 5-8 students are:
- House Leader - Two Year 8 students for each of our four houses - Kowhai, Matai, Totara and Rimu. These students are also Student Council Representatives for the junior classes. House Leaders are selected at the end of the school year.
- Student Council Representative
- Cultural Leader
- Bell and Flag Monitor
- Liaison Officer
- Student Technician
- Physical Activity Leader
- Peer Mediator
- Road Patroller
All student leadership positions are shared at the start of the school year and if the students are interested in any of the roles they apply in writing. Once the selection process has occurred, students are trained in their various roles and then issued with a leadership badge and bar(s), that are worn with pride. There is an option at the end of the year for these badge(s) to be purchased.
