A school is a community of leaders where every individual must accept the responsibility of being a leader and provide service to the community. Perhaps the most important element of communal leadership is to set an example and to be a witness through action to our beliefs and values. These values in a Catholic school must be based on the Gospel values of love, liberation and justice.
Our senior students provide support to our junior students through our Buddy Program. This program helps children entering their first year of primary school to feel safe and connected to the school community, and older students feel valued and respected.
At St William's School, our students participate in a Peer Mediation training program where they learn how to set up and teach games for our Early Years students. They also learn how to actively listen to students to enable them to peacefully resolve any low grade disputes. Any problems of a more serious nature are referred to the teacher on duty.
