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 can be leaders in the classroom, through their actions in the playground, through their support for others, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or local community events or projects.

Each year student leaders are elected to represent their peers and help to run the school. These leaders attend camps, workshops, masterclasses and symposiums to extend their leadership skills. Student leaders then perform many official functions within the school year and help set the standard and maintain the values of excellence, integrity and respect at Manly Village Public School.
Student Representative Council
Student Representative Council (SRC) representatives are elected from each class in the school. These students meet regularly with Senior Executives to discuss learning, the direction the school is taking, ideas for improvement and ways to support various charities through fundraising initiatives.
