Masada College’s The Leader in Me® program believes in the greatness within each child and encourages each child to recognise their own leadership qualities. Every opportunity is looked for to give students an opportunity to take on responsibilities and there is a strong message that you do not need to be wearing a badge or have an official title in order to be a leader. There are however, official leadership roles, with set accountabilities and responsibilities.
Our Senior School expects all students to lead by example and believe that a true leader is one that does the right thing when no-one is looking.
Providing service to the school, local and wider community is the first step in leadership. Our Sheirut (Service) Program encourages all students in Years 7 - 12 to become involved and recognises their contributions.
Students in Year 7 to 12 are members of our Charity/Chesed Committee which has a dual role as both a fundraiser for selected charities and to provide support to those in need by offering their services in such diverse ways as baking, babysitting, dog walking and gardening.
Our Year 12 Prefect Body, led by the school captains, bridges the gap between staff and students, and represent the College at school and community functions and events.
Year 11 students are elected into Peer Support positions to guide Year 7 through their first year of Senior School. They also work closely with Year 8, developing and implementing a program to mentor the students through one of the more challenging years of Senior School.
Year 11 House Captains are actively involved in planning and organising the swimming and athletic carnivals and other inter-house competitions and events such as the Purim Plays. They play a central role in building house spirit and encouraging student participation in a variety of activities.
Sports Captains support our After School Sport Coordinator to manage our sporting teams, ensure they are aware of practice and match times and encourage participation.
The Student Representative Council (SRC) provides a democratic structure within which students can take an active role in the direction and decision-making processes of the College. Students from each year group can nominate to stand for the SRC which is chaired by the School Captains.
