Senior School Initiatives
At Elizabeth Park Schools we promote leadership and team work skills and highly value our senior school students as role models and mentors for our younger students.
Some senior school initiatives are:
- School and House, Sports Day Captains who take on a variety of roles in our school; some of these are: running sports day practices and whole school positive play lunch activities, representing their peers on student voice and representing our school at community events
- Chess lessons to develop student’s ability to solve everyday problems become more patient and teach younger students to play as part of a lunchtime positive play program
- Whole School Fitness organised and run by upper primary students, each morning. Students instruct other classes on how to play a collaborative game and oversee the running of the activity
- Road Crossing Monitor Program involves senior school students ensuring the safety of our student population as they enter and exit school.
Other activities and programs that the senior students take part in are:
- Bi-annual camps to Arbury Park, held over 3 days
- Year 7 Aquatics at Westlakes Aquatic Centre held over 2 days
- Year 7 Graduation, involving a performance, ceremony, formal sit down dinner and a disco
- Year 7 Uniform including a hat and a top, designed by a student as part of a design competition, at the beginning of each year
- Senior School diary, front cover designed by a student from the previous year 7 class as part of an annual competition
- Year 7 Yearbook designed and written by the students and handed out at the end of each year as a memory keepsake of time spent in primary school
