From Year 7 through to Year 12, student leadership is a priority at Viewbank College. Our student leaders make a positive difference to our culture and encourage active involvement in school activities and enrichment opportunities. Aside from College Captains, our students are also provided with the chance to lead in areas such as Community Service, Debating, Drama, Health & Wellbeing, LOTE, Magazine, Music, Sport, SRC, STEM, Visual Arts and as our College House Captains.
In February, the Year 12 Student Leaders will be attending a two-day camp where they will gain a valuable insight into their individual strengths and different leadership styles.

Student Representitive Council
The Student Representative Council (SRC) is a forum for students of all year levels to voice their ideas for improving students' experience of Viewbank College. The SRC is led by the three Year 12 designated SRC Captains. It comprises three representative from years 7-11, and there is also a representative from each class.
The SRC organises an out of uniform day each term. The proceeds of these go to projects within the College such as the bus shelter and the sail over the ampitheatre, and also to community organisations such as Canteen and World Vision.
