  • what is important for a dual campus from subject, pathways, policies and support programmes
  • mission and vision development

Student Leadership 

As College Captains, we are PROUD to welcome students of all abilities and cultural backgrounds to our college. Student voice is represented by year level captains and key groups within our college. We AIM to demonstrate the high expectations and we are also leadership mentors within our Palmerston City Schools community. There are INFINITE opportunities to represent the views of student voice at the College, in the Palmerston community, in the education community and at a Territory and state level, as well as GLOBALLY through our international sister schools partnerships.

Our Student Leadership Team (SLT) are the voice for students from across the college, organising student consultation, actively participate in College decision making, fundraising activities and supporting other worthwhile causes.
