Student opportunities

At Mimosa Public school, we pride ourselves in giving our students the best possible opportunities for leading others and expanding their varied interests.

Student leadership

Student leadership helps young people find their voices, participate in decision-making, and understand their rights and responsibilities as active citizens. It helps students have a real impact on their learning and school environment and prepares them to participate meaningfully in their community.

Students don't have to be school captains or house captains to be considered leaders. We encourage our students to be leaders in the classroom, through their actions in the playground, through their support for other students, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or community events and projects.

Student representative council

Each semester, class representatives are elected for a student representative council (SRC) which meets regularly to raise issues and discuss matters put forward by other students. The councillors also canvas student opinion on proposed changes in policy or routine. The SRC trains students in advocacy, communication and representation, and provides an area for the exercise of leadership skills taught through class programs and school activities.

The SRC may also conduct fundraising throughout the school for various charity organisations.

Enrichment opportunities

There are many enrichment opportunities offered at Mimosa Public School.

These programs are varied and include a broad range of interests including a superb band and music program, drama, dance, mathematics, science and technology, writing, problem solving, visual arts and computing. Different focus areas are chosen with a view to giving children opportunities to foster their talents.

In addition to enrichment programs, the individual needs of children are met in the classroom through differentiated activities to support and extend all students at their own level of development.

During the year, a wide range of opportunities are also offered to students to compete in various competitions and contests at school, district and state levels. These include: Interschool Chess Tournaments, Maths Olympiad, Art Competitions, ICAS Competitions and Young Communicator Awards.

Selected Year 5 students are given opportunities to participate in a Davidson High School Extension program each year.
