Student Representative Council – SRC


The SRC is a strong voice for our students at Newlands Primary School. They represent the views of different year levels, cultures, backgrounds and talents. Being a member of the SRC, teaches the students a range of diverse leadership qualities, such as public speaking, presenting and communicating with others and responsibility, enabling them to be confident young leaders.

At our school, students who are interested in running for an SRC position, prepare a speech and present it to their class. Class members vote in a representative from each year level and the SRC representative is elected by their peers.
