Student Leadership

Involving students in leadership activities is one of the most practical and helpful strategies for gaining the cooperation of students and increasing the value that they and their families place on schooling.

Every pupil in Grade 7 is given a duty portfolio during the year to assist in developing their leadership skills.  Monitor duties are varied and include class monitor, break-time monitor, lost property monitor and lunch monitor. These responsibilities change from term to term.

Through these responsibilities, pupils will learn about the foundations of leadership and how everyday actions can have a positive impact on the school community; build a cohesive year group that understands the value of positive and respectful relationships; develop self-confidence by recognising their own and peers individual strengths and abilities and learn about teamwork and collaboration.
