Student Leadership

Student Agency/Voice/Leadership

Students at St Catherine’s are confident and capable young people. We nurture this through a range of opportunities for student leadership throughout their time with us.

“…students create meaningful schema in their own minds through active engagement with the world” Edutech Website


“Giving students a voice and encouraging them to be partners in their own learning not only increases their agency and achievement, but it also creates positive long-term learning habits.” Sharing good practice: Gonski and encouraging student voice. Rebecca Vukovic.
