At Brentwood Secondary College students can apply for numerous positions that develop and nurture their leadership skills.
Student Representative Council (SRC)
The Student Representative Council (SRC) is an important forum for students to participate in the decision making of the College. There are representatives from each year level as members of the SRC. Two members of the SRC are elected to School Council and attend these meetings to report on the SRC’s activities and provide a student voice to any decisions being made by the College. The SRC meets every week during lunchtime to discuss issues and ideas to bring to the College Executive or School Council.
Each year four School Captains are appointed to represent the entire student community. Our 2020 School Captains are Udit Dhami, Ashley Fuller, Jennifer McDonald and Divi Umakhanthan.
There is one student per House appointed at each Year Level as House Captain and two students at Year 12 representing each House and are given the opportunity to take ownership of and lead house events.
Peer Support Program
Year 10 and 11 students can apply to be part of the Peer Support Program. This program helps student leaders to develop their leadership skills and become role models for Year 7 students.
