Building Student Leaders in the Local Community

The Rise Up program seeks to encourage students to engage by rising up to achieve individual improvement around attendance, achievement, leadership, mentoring and community engagement by setting goals.

A key emphasis of Rise Up at Hedland Senior High School is to increase the opportunities for growth and development within the Student Leadership Team.  2023 has a cohort of 36 students from Year 7 to 12, a significant increase in numbers from 2022.

To support Year 7 leaders to grow and develop, the program has developed a portfolio structure aligned to the foci areas of Arts and Humanities, Culture and Harmony, Diversity and Inclusion, Environment and Sustainability, Sport and the Community and STEM and Innovation.

The Year 8 to 12 student leaders are undertaking a 10-week leadership development program called G.R.I.T (Growth –  Resilience – Integrity – Traction) that aims to cultivate students towards a growth mindset to enable them to learn to embrace challenges, persist in the face of setbacks, see effort as a path to mastery, learn from criticism and to find lessons and inspiration in the success of others.
