Leadership Group

Allendale Primary School encourages students to develop leadership skills and independence. It also promotes rewards for positive behaviour and values students’ input into the running of our school. Our student leadership group of Student Councillors and House Captains assists with leading others.

Each year student leaders and faction captains are selected from the Year 6 cohort. Please click on the following links to see the current student leaders:

2017 Faction Captains

Year 6 students are given many opportunities during their final year at Allendale. They attend a Leadership Day at the Geraldton Camp School, write speeches and present them to be in the running for leadership roles. Year 6 students are able to wear leaders shirts, run morning fitness activities and fundraise for their annual school camp or challenge week.

Factions

Allendale Primary School has four sports factions and we place siblings in the same faction.

Students are encouraged to wear their faction shirts on Fridays.

Our Athletics Carnival is held in Term 3 each year.
