Leadership

Waimea College works to produce students who will become future leaders. We offer mentoring, workshops and leadership opportunities for both junior and senior students.

In Year 10 there is a strong Junior Leadership programme which starts with a camp and culminates in an end-of-year trip to Wellington. Over the year students are encouraged to develop their leadership potential in their peer group and within Waimea College. These students may in the future become one of our head students or House leaders, a Board of Trustees representative, an Academic, Music, Sports or Performing Arts Captain or a member of a number of student-led committees.

Activities such as Stage Challenge are run entirely by students and showcase their leadership skills as well as talent. In Year 10 Waimea College holds an Enterprise for Education (E4E) event over two days that is entirely run by students. It is based around a theme and is a wonderful opportunity for students to show what they are capable of when given support and the opportunity to shine.

Leadership & Opportunities

WC March 2016 - 004Creating Future Leaders and providing leadership opportunities is a recognised strength at Waimea College. In the junior school leadership positions exist at Year 10 and in the senior school the variety of leadership positions include Academic, Sport, Performing Arts, Culture, Environment, International Student Support, Visual Art, House Captains, Community Services, Student Welfare and Diversity Captains.

Our senior student leaders have a significant part to play in leading school assemblies, representing the College in the community and as role models to the wider school. Students also elect a representative to the Board of Trustees.

Students have the opportunity to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh programme, and to represent their year level on the Student Council.

So be inspired ……..
