Student leadership

Senior Leaders and Student Council 


The School Captains, Vice Captains, and the Year 12 Prefects form the student leadership team.

As a group, the students meet regularly with the Year Coordinator and take on roles which serve the student body and the wider school community.


The role of the Student Council is to act as a forum whereby the opinions and concerns of the Cairns State High School student body may be voiced. It aims to establish and foster communication between the year levels and within the year levels by providing opportunities for participation in community and charity projects.

The school also supports leadership at a range of other levels:
  • Student Leaders in Year 7-11 representing their cohort.
  • Indigenous Leaders of Tomorrow (ILT) and Indigenous Leaders of the Future (ILF)
  • Subject and Learning student leadership of particular events

  • Student Senate (called on occasion to discuss strategiuc issues to feedback to School Council
