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.
Junior Leadership Opportunities
In Year 10 we offer a Junior Leadership programme which encourages students to contribute to the life of the school.
The years starts with a camp exploring the school values and finishes with an adventure camp in the Abel Tasman.
There are lots of opportunities during the year that enable the Junior Leaders to connect with and serve the community. Students are encouraged to join the Student Volunteer Army and are given an opportunity to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh programme.
So be inspired …
“School leaders collaboratively develop, pursue and enact the school’s vision and targets for equity and excellence. Their well considered strategic approach is consultative and inclusive.”
