Our school captains for 2023 are Willa G and Jai H (pictured above). The role of our School Captains is to be ambassadors for our school and to provide a student leadership face for Belvedere Park Primary School.
The Student Voice Team is another area of opportunity for students to experience leadership, and have input into the development, of our school.
Two children from each class from Year 1 to Year 6 are elected by their peers for a 12-month term of office. The School Captains are automatically included and are expected to lead the SVT meetings as part of their leadership role. The Foundation children are represented by the Year 6 and Year 5 children.
The SVT meets once per month and is chaired by Miss Hodage and Mrs Lopez. They discuss any issues raised by the children of the various classes, as well as perform a range of mainly social activities around the school.
