This is actively encouraged at Cobden Technical School with opportunities provided through:
- The position of School Captains provides opportunities for students to lead the student body within the school and the wider community.
- Students participate as voting members of student body at School Council.
- Student leadership has both a House and whole-school focus. Each House has House Captains and Student Representative Council (SRC) leaders are drawn from the Houses, with a key executive of President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. These positions encourage development of leadership skills and student input into day-to-day school life.
- We also offer opportunities for students to become Mentor Group leaders and Building Resilience in Corangamite Kids (BRICKs) leaders.
