Student leadership

​The Gap Outdoor Adventure and Leadership Studies (GOALS) has been developed as a core program for Years 7 to 12 students at The Gap State High School. It complements the school's academic curriculum and equips students for a seemingly ever-changing world by delivering a holistic educational experience.

GOALS aims to develop student's potential for life success while developing personal and social competencies and leadership skills.

GOALS has been independently investigated and evaluated by researchers at the University of Queensland and Griffith University as part of an international study run through Cambridge University, called Leadership for Learning.

This evaluation showed that GOALS has universal benefits for all students, regardless of gender or academic ability and is particularly effective in enhancing educational outcomes, developing leadership and planning skills, confidence and self-esteem.

The Gap State High School has a very active student leadership team comprising of:

  • School Captains
  • School Vice-Captains
  • International Captains
  • Student Advisory Council Executive
  • Arts Captains
  • Arts Leaders
  • Sports Captains
  • House Captains
