Our School Ambassadors

The role of School Ambassadors’ is rooted in the promotion of, and championing of, students within each School.

School Ambassadors’ provide support and challenge [albeit it is the CEO/Executive Principal’s core duty to carry out the School Principal’s appraisal and closely monitor the School’s performance].

School Ambassadors’ receive from our School Principal updates on the performance of the School.

1. Exclusions, Behaviour and Attendance
