School Captains

School Captains are leaders of the student leadership team who support the school's leaders (Principal, Assistant Principal, Leading Teachers and Team Leaders) in delivering the school mission and vision. They represent the student voice within the school community and lead the student community throughout the school and across the wider community.


School Captains:

  • Demonstrate the school values and are committed to be role models for our students.
  • Work as leaders and liaise with the Junior School Council and teachers. They meet with the Principal and Assistant principal on a weekly basis to deliver a progress report about student experiences at school.
  • Are student leadership representatives at events such as assemblies, whole school events and events where Chalcot Lodge are represented to the wider community.
  • Conduct tours of the school for special guests or parents.
  • Attend and represent the school at extracurricular events (e.g. End of year concert, ANZAC ceremony, Talent Quest) and other events that may arise during the year.
  • Communicate with student cohort groups to discuss student experiences.


The School Captain selection process is designed to reflect workplace selection processes.

  • All 5/6 students participate in a Leadership Program, where students explore qualities of leaders and develop skills that are expected from a school leader.
  • Through this program, aspiring students prepare written applications addressing selection criteria for the School Captain position.
  • The applications are shortlisted by the Principal and Assistant Principal in consultation with the class teachers.
  • Shortlisted applicants will partake in group interviews. 
  • School Captains and Vice Captains are then selected by the Principal.
