Student leadership

​At Glenmore State School we believe that all students have the right to achieve their personal best at all times. Involvement in leadership builds and enhances in students the necessary citizenship skills to ensure a worthwhile contribution to the Glenmore State School community. Accountability and responsibility are inherent in this trust.

Students at Glenmore State School can apply for the following leadership positions:

  • school captain
  • sport house captain
  • music captain
  • library leader.
Students interested in becoming school leaders will need to submit an application form along with an application letter to the school principal. Interviews for school captain are completed in term four of each school year. Interviews for the other leadership positions occur in term one of the school year.
Badges are presented for the designated leadership roles of school captain, sport house captains, music captains and library monitors at the leaders’ induction ceremony in term one of each year.
