Students at RWA have a range of opportunities to play a role in the life of our school and develop their own leadership skills. Our school has a variety of student-driven councils, from The Student Representative Council to the Interact Club. Each committee offers students the chance to voice their opinions and to create the change they wish to see at RWA. Below is a list of these committees, as well as an explanation of each.
RWA has a select body of Grade 11 students who are nominated and selected to be the Senior Prefects at the school. After an intense period of campaigning, the Head Boy and Head Girl are elected by the Grade 5 and high school students, as well as the teaching body. Prefects take on leadership roles within the student body of the school. They are the embodiment of honesty, integrity, care and commitment, as well as role models for their peers, conducting themselves in a manner that sets an example for the rest of the student body. They assist with daily duties and whole school events, liaise and assist other whole-school bodies such as the Student Representative Council and the Anti-Bullying Committee.
