Our Student Leaders 


Upon reaching our Emmaus Team our intermediate students are offered added responsibilities within our school community.  Our senior students complete an application process and are elected into leadership roles that reflect our school values of Respect, Care and Responsibility.


Our elected Student Leaders become educational, cultural and sporting role models for our younger students.   Our senior students are supported in increasing their leadership skills with school programmes and attending Leadership Conferences designed for Student Councils.

“A leader who will be the most successful will not tell you to do something they show you how it's done.”


I joined the St Mary's School Community at the end of year Two, and am now proud to be one of the Student Leaders appointed by the School. During the short time I have been a Student Leader, I have learnt that you don’t have to do everything alone because you always have support on your journey. Being a Student Leader will be very challenging at times but I believe once you get the hang of it, it's going to be fun!

“Coming together is a beginning,  keeping together is progress and  working together is success”.


I happily joined St Mary's in 2020. It was a wonderful  and surprising experience to be selected as Student Leader for 2021 . It has given me the opportunity to step up and be a great role model for  St Mary's School and I look forward to leading and representing our school values in everything we do. I have made good friends at St Mary’s and they have each helped me get to where I am today. I would like to give a special thank you to my Mother, who has always been my bestest supporter and has always pushed me to work hard so that I could have a good future.


I will always carry this bible verse in my heart. 


“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13


This fills my heart with joy because I know that Jesus gives me strength to accomplish my goals.

“Leaders become great not because of their power but, their ability to empower others.”


My journey at St Marys began in early March 2014, I was a new entrant student in Room 1  and now 7 years later I am one of the Student Leaders for 2021. I started by following someone’s examples into now being someone that leads by example and am very proud of my progress. Over my years at St Marys I have experienced a lot of students and teachers come and go but the amount of love and support we give each other never fails to amaze me. This school has played a big part in my life that I will never forget.

“To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.”


I joined St Mary’s School in 2018.   Becoming a student leader created a spark in my heart. I can demonstrate my faith, leadership and pride to our school community. I am excited for myself and the other student leaders to support our School and lead them on the right path. I am excited to continue to expand my leadership skills through the year.
