Leading from the front" is designed for formal leaders at the end of year 5, or at the beginning of year 6. It provides support to students who have been entrusted with the responsibility of leading the school in a formal way. This process typically includes a number of checkpoints with the group, in particular, a mid-year touchpoint to keep the group on track with managing their commitment to their personal school work and serving their community through their leadership position. This engaging, relevant and flexible process gives your student leaders clear steps, which guides them to: -appreciate that leadership is a service to the school community; -understand that each member brings strengths to the team; -work as a cohesive unit; -generate a clear vision; -put useful ideas into action (rather than just talk about them); -powerfully communicate the vision; -contribute to the school by leaving a positive legacy at the end of their final year as a leader.



  • EVERYDAY LEADERSHIP- Leading everyday through service, action, example. Leadership is a responsibility, not a reward.
