St Joseph’s aims to provide opportunities to develop and cultivate leadership qualities within all students. We aim to instil in our students, a strong sense of social justice through the service of others.

Student Leadership Structure

The Student Leadership Team comprises of four student leaders, four house leaders and eight team leaders.

Peer Support Leaders

All students in Year 9 are all eligible to become Peer Support Leaders in Year 10. Willing students commit to a Leadership Training Day, with interested students completing an expression of interest form the following day. Successful applicants will undergo further training in implementing the Peer Support Program with Year 7.

College Captains

During Term 3 of Year 11, students participate in a series of Leadership Workshops that explore what it means to be a College Leader in a Josephite School and the skills and attributes of leaders. Students reflect on the call to servant leadership and through a discernment process, identify the students who would be capable leaders. Participants in the Leadership Workshops are then invited to submit an Expression of Interest, which includes support statements from teachers in order to be considered for the role of College Captain. As part of the process, students will present a speech to Year 11 and attend an interview with members of the College Executive. As part of the discernment process, Year 11 students and Staff will be invited to indicate their support for potential applicants.

House Captains

At St. Joseph’s College, there are four House Captains. These are;

  • Alcheringa
  • Mereki
  • Wundurra
  • Yoyogamalde

At the end Term 4 Year 10 students who are continuing their education at St. Jospeh’s are invited to participate in a Leadership Experience which culminates in the submission of an expression of interest to be considered a House Captain for the following year.
