Extra-curricular Activities - Leadership Program

Beaumaris North Primary School provides students with the opportunity to develop the personal skills required to undertake leadership roles as outlined in the Victorian Curriculum. Student Leadership positions are elected annually and generally appointed within the first two weeks of the year. Leadership roles are held in very high regard and a special assembly is held to present our student leaders with their badges. The ceremony is followed by a special morning tea for the student leaders and their parents.
