After consultation with the current School College Captains and SLC members we would like to introduce a new College Ambassador Program which will allow students greater opportunity and involvement in leadership. The aim of this program is to develop highly confident and capable young student leaders.
The Sale College Ambassador Program will provide students with a greater connection to the College while developing skills in public speaking, chairing meetings, taking minutes, organising events and fundraising programs. Additionally, Sale College Ambassadors assist with special year level programs and events within the wider community.
