Student leadership

Leadership is action, not position. It is the challenge to be something more than average.
 
Our leadership structure is quite different from the traditional structure in many schools and will provide far greater opportunities for more students to become involved in leadership activities.
Opportunities exist for students to take one of three leadership roles from each class to be a member of one of the following teams. Talk to your child about taking up a student leadership position.
