At Temple Christian College we believe in the importance of encouraging students to find their own expression of service within the school community. As students journey their way through middle and senior school they are provided with a number of opportunities.
Every year, Temple Christian College selects and empowers a group of Year 12 students as School Prefects. Leaders and role models to their peers, students who accept the role of Prefect accept all the responsibility associated with this esteemed role, modelling servant leadership and acting as chief ambassadors of the school in a number of settings. At the commencement of each year, the Prefects travel to Canberra to take part in the Student Leadership Conference which draws together student leaders from all over Australia.
Open to students from Years 9 to 12, House Leaders are elected by their peers to lead their house in school house activities and competitive events that take place during the year. Events such as Inter-House Swimming Carnival, Athletics Day and Cross Country. House Leaders have the opportunity to work with house staff to organise events that facilitate fellowship and relationship building within the school community.
Music & Sports Captains
Each year the positions of Music & Sports Captains are held by students undertaking Year 12 and specialists in their respective subject field. Their role is to support the Faculty and give leadership to other students involved in their specialised school programs. Nominations for these positions are undertaken while the students are in Year 11.
Student Service Council
The Student Service Council SSC, is open to students across all year levels. Elected by their peers, the students within the council help to lead the school in a 'helps' ministry role.
The Temple Christian College CSI Award has been developed to recognize and encourage Christian Character, Service and Christ like influence in our students. As a Christ-centered community we believe that out of our growth in character comes the need to develop in the area of service and finally God has called each one of us to be a person of Godly influence. There are three levels of CSI Awards each presented with a corresponding badge to signify the level attained: Bronze, Silver and Gold.
