At Box Hill High School we value the development of the ‘whole child’ and believe in providing an enriched environment for all. We are particularly proud of the number of exciting and interesting extra curricular activities available to students. Importantly, there are also many opportunities that exist for students to develop leadership skills and have a clear voice in what is happening within the school. These opportunities contribute to a positive school environment where students feel they are an integral part of the school community and can have an impact and a say concerning their own learning, personal well-being and that of others.
Prefects at Box Hill High School plan an important part in school life as mentors and role models and in assisting staff in ensuring a secure, well-ordered and happy environment for all students. They are expected to make a significant contribution to the running of the school and numerous extra-curricular activities. The prefects are final year students who are elected by senior students and staff.
Student Representative Council (SRC)
The SRC are a group of students elected by their peers at each year level. These students work collaboratively to focus on improving school wellbeing, facilities and policies at Box Hill High School. SRC members are expected to assist in implementing changes at the school and encourage other students to participate in school events and use their voice to improve the school. SRC members are part of the larger Student Voice Team.
House captains are Year 9 and Year 12 students who are elected by their peers to organise and encourage house participation at Box Hill High School. These students are expected to attend all house events and take an innovative, creative and enthusiastic approach in further developing the BHHS House System. House Captains are part of the larger Student Voice Team.
Student Voice is an ever-expanding aspect of life for the Box Hill High School student. As well as the opportunities that exist through leadership roles within the school, there are many more forums by which students can voice their thoughts and opinions and have a say in their own learning experience. Principal Morning Teas, Student Focus Groups, Pastoral Care Student Surveys, GAPP Student Surveys, Elective Reviews, Year 7 Coordinator Luncheons to name but a few. ‘Student voice’ is growing throughout the school and at Box Hill High School we are committed to its ongoing development. Over the next few years the alignment of "Positive Education" and "Student Leadership and Voice" will have an increasingly positive impact on student achievement and personal wellbeing of both students and staff at BHHS.
