At Dairy Flat School we recognise the importance of developing leadership in our students. Students at Dairy Flat School have many opportunities to develop their leadership. Leadership skills are a key component of our school values Respect, Responsibility and Resilience.
Year 6 student leaders are selected at the start of the year. They are role models to all our students, especially those aspiring to be school leaders in the future. They organise and involve themselves in special events at Dairy Flat School which develop our values and school culture.
The school leaders meet weekly with Katie Hills, our school principal. The students bring ideas and issues to the meetings. They are also consulted on initiatives and happenings within the school. What they think and feels strongly matters to our staff, BOT and school community
