Rasmussen has a student leadership program. Student leaders model expected behaviours, represent the school and have a say in the school operations. We have two forums for this School:
School Leaders (4) and House Captains (6)
The school community at the end of Year 5 elects these. The process for selection are based on characteristics, a public speech and may include an interview process, supported by teacher references. The students are informed of expected traits such as work habits, peer support, handling of responsibility, honesty, reliability, approachability, trust, and their impact in the role.
Our Year 5 and 6 students also participate in a leadership program, led by our School Chaplain. 'Vital' is a team building opportunity to build 'perseverance, trust, co-operation and empathy towards others.
