Student Leadership

All Gungahlin College students have the opportunity to become actively involved in our school community through a range of leadership roles. These create the important 'student voice' that creates our positive school culture.

We provide student leadership opportunities through the EMPOWER program. Empowerment is seen every day at the college through students pursuing their passions, leading our school community and continuously striving to excel in their intellectual, leadership, creative or artistic capacity, or in specific academic fields.

Some of the leadership opportunities include:

All leadership groups are supervised by a teacher, meet regularly with the College Principal and participate in school and community projects.
