Grade 6 Leadership Program

A key feature of Koroit and District Primary School’s success is the active involvement in students in the life of the school.

The 2020 Leadership team consists of – School Captains, Community and Cultural Leaders, Choose Kind Leaders, Pet Zone Leaders, House Captains, Sports Captains,  Sustainability Leaders, E- Smart Leaders and Art Leader.

As a KDPS grade 6 leader, students are supported and encouraged to;

1. Use their Voice and share ideas.

2. Contribute to team work.

3. Show the way and lead by example.

Students also participate in weekly leadership lessons  focusing on the following ares;

  • ‘what makes’ a good leader

  • organisational and team skills

  • encouraging and problem solving

Our School Captains attend the annual GRIP Leadership program in Geelong.

GRIP Leadership is an independent organisation that exists to train and develop leaders with a special focus on school students and the educational sector.

All Grade 6 students also have the opportunity to apply for the Leaders Congress Team each year.


Following the Leaders Congress Day, the team work together to initiate and follow through with a community project. The Leaders Congress is an authentic leadership experience enabling students to make a different in their school and local community.
