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.
