"The Thomas More College SRC philosophy focuses on the image of servant leadership as presented by Jesus, both through his life, and in his teaching. At Thomas More College, student leadership is not just about being recognised but learning to become a genuine servant leader of our community."
Our student representatives are involved in a number of leadership development activities throughout the year. Part of the responsibility undertaken by students who become student leaders is to challenge themselves, to think about their leadership styles, set goals and bond together as a team. Our student leaders often develop social action groups within the College and muster support for local and wider community charities.
During the course of the school year, each student representative conducts class room meetings, gathering information about what is of concern to students in their homerooms and year levels. The students regularly report back to the wider group discussing issues, consulting with relevant staff to resolve the issues and then feeding back ideas and outcomes to their peers. The senior SRC team also holds regular lunch meetings with the Principal, Mr Andrew Balkwill. The College Captains have the added responsibility of regularly reporting the student perspective to the College Board at their monthly meetings.Thomas More College SRC has an important role at Assemblies. Generally the College Captains lead the way, acting as Masters of Ceremonies while other SRC act as readers and give reports as required. This particular responsibility of speaking fluently and coherently in front of a large audience is something that is encouraged and developed in our student leaders.
Our student leaders also volunteer as ushers for events such as Open Day, Principal's Tours and Parent Information and Orientation Evenings and attend a number of special events in the College calendar as representatives and ambassadors of our College.
