Student Leadership

This is a happy, supportive school in which the students play a prominent part in all aspects of school life. Leadership skills are encouraged and developed by

  • An energetic Prefect body - activities include running school assemblies, inter-school activities with North Sydney Boys High School, and induction programs for Year 7 students
  • An active Student Representative Council drawn from all Years
  • Student representation on the School Council
  • PALS-peer support system pairing Year 11 and Year 7 students
  • The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme which encourages initiative responsibility

Student Representative Council

At North Sydney Girls, the Student Representative Council plays an integral part of student life. It consists of 35 motivated representatives who are dedicated to making North Sydney Girls an enjoyable and inclusive place. 

Elections for the SRC take place in Term 3; five students from Year 7 to 12, except for Year 11 where eight representatives are chosen, to fill the executive positions within the body. The students are trained and inspired to develop goals and values, which will support the wellbeing and personal growth of the students they represent. 

Just some of North Sydney Girls SRC values and goals are: 

  • To encourage and enhance inter-grade relationships 

  • To provide students with better facilities

  • To increase road and sun safety awareness 

  • To encourage student participation in school activities

  • To create a warm, caring and pleasant school environment

  • To raise school spirit by establishing a school mascot and through the organisation of a calendar of SRC run activities

  • To bring together the school community 

  • To motivate students to perform to the best of their ability

In the past the SRC have provided students with better facilities within the school, they have improved diaries, changed the school’s uniform, fund-raised for many worthy charities and much, much more! The SRC has even brought North Sydney Girls into the Guinness Book of World Records for the World’s Biggest Hug.

Each year our SRC values and goals evolve to meet the changing needs of the cohort, which exists within its societal landscape and thus it will take on varying projects and activities. We have seen the introduction of a Karaoke night to fit in with the annual calendar of events which includes: junior and senior trivia night’s, dances, Valentines and Christmas candy cane activities, Harmony Day and RUOK awareness campaigns which promote the safety and welfare of students and the annual Alumni Mocktail Night.

Presently and in the future, the North Sydney Girls Student Representative Council will continue to strive to motivate students, maintain a link between the staff and students within the school community and raise school spirit by making school fun.
