Student leadership

Each year two “School Captains” (Year 10) and two “Vice-Captains” (Year 6) are elected from the student body by the school community. To be a school captain or vice-captain at Goomeri is a prestigious position within our school community. As a school captain / vice-captain you not only represent your fellow students but you also represent the school’s values in the wider community.
School Captains and Vice-Captains must demonstrate a commitment to the rules that our school believes are important and accept the responsibilities that come with the role. They must be good ambassadors for the school including: speaking on behalf of fellow students, welcoming visitors to our school and representing our school at functions such as ANZAC Day. School Captains and Vice-Captains must be committed to working as a team with the Student Council, ensuring that meetings are held regularly, that fundraising initiatives are planned and implemented and that regular meetings with the Principal are organised to discuss ideas and issues.
Two “House Captains” (Year 10) and two “Vice House Captains” (Year 7) are also elected each year. The role of House Captains and Vice-Captains are to: be a good role model who is willing to actively participate in all major school sporting events i.e., Swimming Carnival, Cross Country, Athletics Carnival, to provide student leadership in all school sporting activities, encourage other students to participate in all school sporting activities, to display exemplary sportsmanship qualities at all times, foster team spirit and to assist with setting up and cleaning up after carnivals.
School Captains, School Vice-Captains, House Captains and House Vice-Captains form part of the “Student Council”. Two class representatives from Years 4 to 10 are also elected to complete this group. A treasurer is elected by the council from its Year 10 members.
Goomeri’s Student Council aims to represent and work for all students of Goomeri School on matters of student welfare and education through the elected Executive and Class Representatives.
