Each year a group of senior students at Chelsea Primary School are elected to a range of leadership positions. These students play a leadership role within the school and through mentoring and participation in a diverse range of activities they are supported to develop the following skills and traits:

School Captains represent the beliefs and values of Chelsea Primary School. They promote the school vision and these values for our community. The role involves leadership, mentoring and the maintenance of an achievable standard to which other students can aspire to. Duties include representing the school at community events, greeting visitors to the school, mentoring junior students and fellow leaders as well as organizing and supporting school events. 



School House Captains and Vice House Captains demonstrate a high level of leadership as well as presenting a high level of team work, motivational and sporting ability. Captains exercise responsibility when representing the school in sporting teams across the district, or at regional and state levels.

House Captains maintain a high level of commitment throughout the year to promote sport events, encourage and motivate teams as well as assist the PE Teacher and school staff in sports related matters.

The House Captains encourage and motivate their House members. They assist the PE Teacher and school staff at all school sport events. Captains lead, motivate and support their House in participation, competitive spirit and sportsmanship.

House and Vice House captains also work as a sporting leadership team to promote participation in sport across the school.

Chelsea Primary School promotes active student participation as a means to improve student outcomes and engagement. Student participation ranges from students sharing their opinions of problems and potential solutions through Student Representative Councils and Student Voice Captains throughout years levels 2-6, the students provide feedback associated with school strategic planning. It also includes our students sharing their ‘voice’ in class by collaborating with teachers to improve educational outcomes.

Students are encouraged to share their voice through:

  • school leadership positions such as school and house captains
  • representing their classes on Student Representative Council or Peer Mentoring Action Team (Bullying Prevention Team)
  • taking weekly Friday Assembly that reinforces our school values
  • organising events within the school e.g. student led clubs, fundraising activities
  • class discussions and student feedback
  • participation in their own self-evaluation both formally and informally
  • personal goal setting
