At Holy Spirit Catholic College Lakemba, we encourage our students to recognise that they are individuals with agency who can foster charity, joy and patience within their community through collaboration, creativity, and kindness.
Holy Spirit’s Student Representative Council (SRC) consists of 12 elected representatives from Year 12 who act as the student voice of the college. They work together with the 12 class captains elected from each year group to discuss student wellbeing and school programming.
The SRC are actively involved in school life and help organise events such as Teacher V Student games to bolster school spirit and a sense of community.
All students are provided with opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities or whole school events. In the season of Lent, Caritas Australia’s annual Project Compassion allows students from every year group an opportunity to create and lead fundraisers. During winter and Christmas, it is through the student’s efforts that hampers are organised efficiently. Students may also participate in activities or events such as: Open Day tour guides, fundraising activities through Caritas’ Project Compassion, working with the Sisters of St Joseph on social justice initiatives such as the House of Welcome and Holy Spirit Day activities.
