At St Scholastica’s College there are many opportunities to acquire leadership experience.  Some are formal where individual students are elected, some are informal and some are simply grasped by students who see a need on campus. The nature of authentic leadership means it is an experience open to all students each day in a variety of situations.


The College has removed the hierarchy for School Captains and Boarding School Captains. Instead, there are two Co-Captains.

Seven House Captains will be drawn from the HSC class - one from each Homeroom.

From Year 11 there are Music, Drama and Public Speaking & Debating Prefects and three Prefects in each House responsible for Sport, Stewardship and Participation.

A Class Captain automatically becomes a member of the House Council, which replaces the structure of the SRC (Student Rep Council) for the formulation of ideas and strategies from the student body.

Big Sister Program

Many Year 11s volunteer to undertake critically important leadership roles when they step up to take on continuing mentoring roles as part of the Big Sister Program for new-to-Schols Year 7 students, thus easing the Year 7s into the College in what can be a difficult time.


These volunteers begin their training in Year 10 and continue as daily leaders, beginning when the new students are welcomed on Orientation Day and ending when the volunteers themselves graduate.


Good Samaritan Education

Good Samaritan Education (GSE) is responsible for ten incorporated colleges in Australia. Established in 2011 by the Sisters of the Good Samaritan, the mission of GSE is to sustain and nurture our Catholic schools as Good Samaritan Benedictine communities of learning.
