Student Wellbeing

Student leadership at CWPS

Student leadership helps young people find their voices, participate in decision-making, and understand their rights and responsibilities as active citizens. It helps students have a real impact on their learning and school environment and prepares them to participate meaningfully in their community.

Students can be leaders in the classroom, through their actions in the playground, through their support for others, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or local community events or projects.

For more information about opportunities in NSW public schools, visit Student voice and leadership.

We offer a variety of student-led opportunities, including:
- Student Leadership Team
- Student Representative Council
- Peer Support
- Classroom Buddy Programs.
