Student leaders are role models for our student community. At Flinders, our leaders learn how to step into their important role to guide their fellow students with kindness, consideration and encouragement.

Our leaders uphold our College values of Courage, Respect, Integrity and Compassion. These values are important for our Flinders graduates as they strive to build a successful future with positive relationships in their life and career beyond the College gates.

There are many opportunities to lead at Flinders, whether as College Captains across the Sub-Schools and Primary and Secondary campuses, House Captains, Student and Staff Council Representatives, Round Square Ambassadors, Co-Curricular Captains, including Music and Sport Captains, and more.

Our College also encourages students to lead in terms of their 'personal brand' and to lead within their families, friendships groups and communities. Students learn that leadership does not always come with an official honour or badge; it is the way we lead our own lives by making positive and kind choices in learning and life that enables us all to succeed.

What is the most exciting thing about being a school captain?

Having the platform to relate to the people I represent, to share my experiences on a large scale and for students to know they can confide in their older peers as we have experienced a lot of what they go through.

What one thing do you want to achieve for your school this year?

To be a servant to others in the community, to not being afraid to be vulnerable and to be a leader who others look to for leadership by being open, genuine and down to earth.

- Patrick Courtney, 2023 College Leader

What is the most exciting thing about being a school captain?

Too communicate on a larger scale to younger grades and convey the student voice to senior staff to improve student wellbeing. As College captain, you are also exposed to a wide variety of professionals in all fields who teach you vital leadership and communication skills and it is also very exciting to work with our Prefect team

What one thing do you want to achieve for your school this year?

For students to remember and understand the positive impact that we collectively achieved, measured by our ability to create an environment of camaraderie and support, cultivating school spirit through increasing attendance at Flinders events and engagement for the inaugural Prefect run event, Colours for a Cause, which will raise money for The Board Meeting, an amazing local charity.

- Zoe McKenzie, 2023 College Leader
