The College places strong emphasis and importance on providing opportunities for students to undertake ‘real’ leadership positions in the College Community.

The student leadership profile is extensive and provides many opportunities for students to contribute in a positive way to the College; it also provides a ‘student voice’ within the College. All our student leaders receive on-going formal and informal leadership and public speaking training. Student leaders are coached and mentored to ensure they are skilled and confident in performing their roles

College Captains

Each year the College appoints two Year 12 students as College Captains. Their role is to represent all Mooroolbark College students.

Our College Captains meet regularly with college administration, represent the college at official functions, run College Assemblies, demonstrate leadership of the student body, act as role models and enjoy automatic membership of the SRC; they are expected to play an active role in SRC operation.

Selection: Process is by nomination, letter of application and interview.

House Captains

Two House Captains are appointed by the College for each house. These students may be from either year 11 or 12.

While House Captains have an important role to play in leading the sporting activity of their respective houses – especially at the three sporting carnivals held annually; swimming, athletics and cross country – their role is more extensive. Each House Captain is a voice for the students within their house. They are expected to meet regularly with the head of house, run house assemblies and provide input into a range of academic, sporting and welfare house related activities. House Captains enjoy automatic membership of the SRC and are expected to play an active role in its operation.

Selection: Process is by nomination, letter of application and interview.

Student Representative Council (SRC)

The SRC is an integral part of our college community, providing an opportunity for the opinions of all students to be heard and student issues addressed in a structured and formal way.

The structure of the SRC at Mooroolbark College ensures all students are fairly represented.

  • General committee
  • College Captains (automatic membership)
  • House Captains (automatic membership)
  • Blue house representatives (years 11, 10, 9, 8 and 7)
  • Green house representatives (years 11, 10, 9, 8 and 7)
  • Red house representatives (years 11, 10, 9, 8 and 7)
  • Yellow house representatives (years 11, 10, 9, 8 and 7)
  • Executive Commitee
    From the general committee an executive is chosen.

Selection: The house representatives – when nominated, take part in an election, conducted by the Australian Electoral Commission, to determine the successful candidate for each year level in each house.

Students are encouraged to nominate for the SRC as a way of supporting their fellow students and contributing to the College.

SRC representatives provide a student voice on the Mooroolbark College Council and its sub-committees.
