Student Leadership

Student Leadership

FHS encourages students to take on roles that demonstrate leadership and responsibility within the school and the wider community.

The school promotes leadership in many areas such as community service, sport, music, drama, peer support and environmental sustainability.

The following programs within the college provide opportunities for students to develop their leadership skills:

  • Student Leadership Council
  • STRIDE Peer Support Program (Years 7 & 10)
  • High Resolve Global Citizenship Program (Years 8 and 10)
  • World Challenge Program (Years 9 – 11)
  • School for Student Leadership Program (Year 9)
  • Sports Coaching Program (Years 9 – 10)

Community Mindedness

As well as our core focus on students developing their individual potential, we promote the values of respect and responsibility for others, care and compassion. A number of our programs explicitly promote these values and aim to develop each student’s sense of social responsibility, locally and globally.

These programs include:

  • Community Action Project Year 9 – students are formally trained as volunteers and complete a community placement
  • Sport and fitness coaching in local primary schools
