Student Leadership is an integral part of the Cabra community and provides formal opportunities for students’ voices to be heard, enabling them to participate in shaping the community to which they belong. It celebrates the gifts, talents and contributions of students as they serve the school community.
Through our Student Leadership program, our student leaders inspire their peers and teachers alike with their commitment to social justice activities and standing in solidarity with those marginalised in our community. Most notable is the genuine desire of Cabra students to understand the causes of injustice and how they might contribute to building a better world for everyone. Each year our students support Caritas’s Project Compassion and the Vinnie’s Winter Appeal, while also focussing on issues within our school, such as sustainability, and issues in the wider community, like rights for refugees. In our daily lives at Cabra, the commitment to social justice is also evident in the many ways that our students allow and encourage their peers to be themselves and welcome those who are new to our country, our neighbourhood and our college.
