Proserpine State High School's 2016 Leaders
2015 was a milestone for Proserpine State High School as we congratulated our inaugural Junior Secondary Executive team. As Year 7 joined high school for the first time across QLD schools, student leadership has been highlighted as a key element within our junior secondary school. Research shows that young adolescents benefit greatly from involvement in activities that develop their leadership skills, building confidence, a sense belonging and self-esteem.
Our Junior Executive will represent strongly the students from year 7 to 9, giving them a true sense of identity and ownership within our whole school context. Student leadership at Proserpine State High School has developed rapidly over the past 18 months, to a position where we now have a student leadership structure that truly reflects the quality of students we have in our wonderful school. The leadership committee structure delivers greater opportunity for students within our school to become involved in key leadership initiatives and grow their leadership potential.
At Proserpine State High School we believe in enhancing the leadership skills of all our students through programs that develop individual responsibility, promote independence, and promotes the growth responsible citizens. Local spirit is strong within our school and we pride ourselves on preparing students to become active community members and to lead next generation of youth in the Whitsunday Region.
