Student Leadership

Servant Leadership is the model of leadership we espouse at Roncalli College. This means helping others to become the best they can be. Servant Leadership is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less often.

The leadership programme is designed to extend students and challenge them to be the best young person they can be.  The programme is designed to build upon itself and give students the opportunities to use the skills we teach them during their time at Roncalli. 

The programme is underpinned with core Gospel values of where humility and integrity are integral to the development of the Roncalli Leader.  Students should have an understanding of servant leadership where ethical decisions are promoted and encouraged.

The programme will be designed to give all students an opportunity to develop as leaders and give leadership opportunity in the Roncalli community.

What are the requirements for a leadership position at Roncalli?

A leader should:

  • Embody the ideals of Roncalli as a Catholic and Marist/Mercy school, have a commitment to its special character and be a worthy representative of the school i.e. a person of integrity

  • Be a person of faith

  • Be a person of justice with a genuine desire to serve others

  • Be committed to studies as well as co-curricular activities

  • Have pride in the College which is exemplified in the way uniform is worn, property is respected and the way he/she conducts himself/herself  in public

  • Develop positive relationships with students of all year groups

  • Support his/her Dean, House Group Teacher and all members of staff

  • Be proactive and solution focused

  • Live the College motto- "To Seek Truth and Peace"

All student leaders are expected to be positive role models, both inside and outside of school, and to actively promote the special character of Roncalli College. They are also expected to contribute positively to all aspects of College life.

The support I received at Roncalli allowed me to work hard to achieve my desired results. I will be always be grateful for the opportunities given to me during my years at Roncalli College.
