Student Leadership

As a way of introducing students to leadership roles, Kinross College offers them the opportunity to serve as members of the school’s Student Council. The students are introduced to a leadership development program. It is a seasonal opportunity extended to the students.

The Student Council is headed by a Head Boy, a Head Girl, and six House Captains selected from Year 10. Other members of the Council are elected from Years 7, 8 and 9, and they all serve as Year Leaders.  Members of the school staff supervise the members of this Council.

Members of the Student Council meet once a week. They also assist members of staff with several activities throughout the academic year. Some of the activities include getting involved in fundraising and social events.

Academic Program

Rangers

Kinross College has a partnership with Cadets WA and the Department of Communities, which allows them to offer students opportunities to develop self-management, interpersonal, outdoor skills, and knowledge about the WA Police Force. This program is available only to students in Yrs 8 – 12. It helps students to develop leadership skills, friendships, and confidence and resilience attributes. This development takes place in a respectful and disciplined environment while maintaining a ranking system.

There are various benefits students enjoy because they are Rangers. Some of them include access to International programs like World Challenge and a graduation ceremony where students who have performed well are promoted to the next rank.

World Challenge
This is a program which happens once in two years. Students and staff from Kinross College organise and participate in a challenging adventure to an international destination. World Challenge supports the World Challenge program. Teacher coordinators select an international destination from about fifty others from all seven continents. The World Challenge program is an avenue for students to acquire skills outside the classroom.
