In 2022, the Student Representative Council consists of representatives from Years 7-12 and Prefects, and meets every week at lunchtime. The role of the Representative Council is for students to have a forum to discuss issues concerning the student body. It also supports a number of charities nominated by the Council. These charities have been selected because they have a direct relationship with members of the school community. These charities include Stewart House, Jeans for Genes, CANTEEN and the Grossmann Christmas Giving Tree. The SRC also organise throughout the year with funds supporting both the elected charities and student needs within the school. The SRC is coordinated by three committed staff members Mrs Jardine, Mrs Skinner and Mr Jarrad Belbin. The Prefect tradition has a long standing history with Maitland Grossmann High School. Prefects are elected from the Year 11 student cohort during Term 3 by Year 11 students and staff. The Prefects then join the Student Representative Council and assume their other leadership duties such as Year 7 mentoring, Assembly Duty and Canteen Duty.
The SRC and Prefects are formally inducted at an assembly during when our Honorary Prefects Mrs Lee Osborne and Mrs Bev Smith attend and present our school leaders with their badges. The SRC and Prefect body attend Leadership workshops and conferences.
Mrs Belinda Skinner is the Prefect Adviser.
Congratulations to the following students who were elected school Captain's, Vice Captain's, Senior Prefect and Prefects of Maitland Grossmann High School for 2022.
School Captains, Vice Captains and Senior Prefect
From Term 3 2022, our new Student Voice and Leadership procedures will come into effect. These procedures were developed through a rigorous review process that involved consultation with students, staff and our parent community.
Maitland Grossmann High School (MGHS) has a strong tradition of student voice, participation and leadership in the school. We value the perspective and opinions of our students and the way in which students and teachers work together to ensure authentic student voice, participation and leadership genuinely shapes learning and decision-making at the school. We have five (5) student leadership groups within the school and they are:
- Senior Student Leaders – comprising of our Captains, Vice Captains, Senior Prefect and Prefects
- Student Representative Council (SRC) – up to four delegates per year group
- Support Unit Stage Leaders
- Junior AECG
- House Captains
Our Student Voice and Leadership Procedures outlines the roles and responsibilities of each of these positions and the election processes undertaken. Elected leaders are inducted in Term 4 at our Student Leadership Induction Ceremony that takes place in Week 6.
