The College provides many opportunities for students to develop their leadership skills. Each year students are encouraged to nominate for the College Student Activities and Leadership Team (SALT).
Students complete a written application and nominate referees. For each positon a panel is formed with student representatives and teachers. The College Captain panel also has a community representative. It is their difficult task to shortlist for interview. Each shortlisted student is interviewed and then the panel has to make the hard decision on who to appoint for the coming year. It is a great experience for students to have to express their ideas on how to fulfill the role in the pressure situation of an interview.
Successful students are presented with a badge and College Captains with a blazer at a whole school assembly / presentation night. All shortlisted students receive written feedback from the panel.
Throughout their term, student leaders have the opportunity to present at year level and whole school assemblies and end of year presentation events. They also act as guides on Open Night and welcome guests to the school. Sport Captains take lead roles at the swimming, athletics and cross country carnivals.
The College is proud to recognises the student leaders for 2017.

The Student Voice Committee allows groups of students to work towards positive changes while representing the entire student body. Being involved in this program was an exciting way for me to begin my year and has presented me with a variety of learning experiences. The Student Voice selection process enables applicants to gain confidence whilst completing an interview. My participation has benefited my group work and public speaking. I now have the chance to gather feedback from other students and bring forth their opinions to the Student Voice Committee. As a member, I also had the opportunity to become a junior school captain. After putting the speech writing skills I learned in the committee to the test, I was fortunate enough to be elected. I’m proud to be a leader of the junior school and especially pleased to be gaining valuable life skills. Being a leader has made my time at Gleneagles challenging, interesting and rewarding.
