Highfields State School has an enthusiastic and active Student Council comprised of students who share ideas for school initiatives and organise fundraising opportunities for both charities and the school community. The role of a Student Council is to support ongoing projects within the school and to build on the culture of our school community.
Our Student Council aims to support student wellbeing and allows students to share their opinions and ideas with staff and leadership. Student Council representatives learn leadership skills related to organising and running meetings and develop plans for improvements within our school community.
Students from Years 3 to 6 may nominate to be on the Student Council. One student per class is voted by their peers to be the class representative each semester. Councillors are expected to represent the student body and need to show this through their daily actions by following the school-wide Positive Behaviour expectations.
