Student Leadership

Each year, Tallangatta Secondary College Year 11 students apply to be leaders of the College for the year that they are in Year 12. These students are selected following a rigorous process involving a written application and interview by a selection panel. They represent the college at whole school assemblies, school functions and community events. This includes organising and leading the annual combined schools Anzac Day Ceremony. They actively lead the Student Leadership Team, who meet fortnightly and consists of representatives from each year level.

All students from Years 7 – 12 have the opportunity to nominate to be a member of the Student Leadership Team (SLT). SLT members represent their year level at meetings and assist in making decisions for the College. The SLT meets regularly to discuss issues and plan activities for their peers. Tallangatta Secondary College places a high importance on student agency and voice.

Tallangatta Secondary College has a proud history and has a well-established tradition of inter-house and inter- school competition. House Captains lead the four houses Mitta, Murray, Kiewa and Hume.

Through the Sport and Recreation Program, students gain skills and expertise in sports leadership and coaching. Students in this program support teaching staff in the Physical Education Program. They also coach inter- school sports teams and accompany them to sporting events. Students also assist in running activities and sports days for our cluster primary schools.

Music students have the opportunity to become a music captain. These students assist in the organisation and planning of music events, performances and tours.

Each year a group of Year 9 students apply to be Peer Support Leaders in Year 10 during Term 1. Those selected through an application and interview process, become leaders and mentors for the incoming Year 7 students the following year. Peer Support Leaders play a vital part in supporting the Year 7 students in becoming familiar with the school and building new friendships. Leaders also attend the Year 7 camp.
