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.
Each year, ten students from Year 6 represent the student body of our school as ambassadors. Elections are held at the end of the previous year with students in years one to five participating. Ambassadors accept a range of roles and responsibilities which are always undertaken with cheerful enthusiasm and friendly courtesy.
Student Representative Council (SRC)
Each year students elect a representative for their class on DHPS SRC. Students are active in engaging with matters brought by members on behalf of their peers. SRC also supports fund raising for specific purposes, most often, children in other parts of Australia or overseas, whose education has been affected by natural disasters.
