Student Leadership

St James Senior Students in Years Five and Six, are given a number of leadership responsibilities within the St James School community. This provides the students with the opportunity to build confidence, demonstrate responsibility, effective communication, compassion, care, organisation, patience, perseverance and many other qualities of effective leadership.


St James has five Leadership Ministries - Pastoral, Spirit, Cultural, Academic and Stewardship. The Senior Students are leaders within each of these ministries and they lead and assist with ​events and celebrations throughout the year.

The St James Buddy Program is a highlight for our school leaders, where a connection is formed across two year levels. This program creates a caring bond between each Prep student and their Senior buddy. This initiative provides a sense of security for our Prep students and develops a sense of responsibility for our leaders but most importantly, it creates a deep and long lasting friendship! ​
