Student leadership at Our Lady of Fatima builds positive self-concepts and relationships and provides opportunities for students to develop their individual capacity to lead and influence others in a responsible way. Student Leadership involves the annual election of school captains and sports captains in addition to all of the Year Six students being assigned the role of ‘student leader’ across various areas to foster a sense of community, school vision and purpose related to the Mercy and Gospel values. These leadership domains include: Faith and Community, Pastoral Care, Social Justice, Hospitality, Media and Environment.
