Student leadership

Students don't have to be school captains or house captains to be considered leaders. We encourage our students to be leaders in the classroom and playground, through their support for other students, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or community events and projects.

Students at Newport Public School have the opportunity to participate in a range of leadership initiatives. Each year, our Year 6 students are inducted as school leaders and participate in elections for our school parliament. Students are elected to ministerial positions within the parliament and are responsible for varied portfolios such as fundraising, the environment or sports.
