Student leadership

Student Leadership at St James: Prefect Teams and School Parliament

Our Intent:

To promote micro behaviours that we want to see by making role models of students that display these good habits.  To promote what it means to be a good and productive citizen and member of a community, so that students leave school as good people.  To develop an understanding of applications, interviews, presentations and democracy.  Building students' cultural capital, understanding of democracy and future prospects through enhanced C.V’s and skills.
