Each student leader is a role model for the younger boys, contributing to a positive school spirit and promoting a culture of excellence, camaraderie, and service. Their opinions and voice are encouraged through College Assemblies, school activities, a regular column in our newsletter Tolle Lege, charity events and representing St Augustine’s College at external community initiatives with local council, State and Federal Government, and schools.

Student Representative Council (SRC)

The Student Representative Council is a group of students from Years 5 to 12 who represent all students in the school. The SRC fosters school spirit and leadership among students encouraging school-wide participation. Its members generate ideas within the College community and implement initiatives that are important to our students, such as fundraisers and sustainability programs. Students participate in character strength analyses, public speaking opportunities and various activities to build capacity in communication, problem solving and teamwork.
