Middle School Leadership

At our first Middle School assembly of the year we inducted the 2018 Prefects and House Leaders. Our Principal, Mrs Dunstan, our Deputy Principal, Mr Atterton, and the Heads of House joined us for this assembly, as did many of the parents of our student leaders.  Our Prefects and House Leaders were presented with badges and they all made the leaders oath.

The entire Middle School enthusiastically congratulated our new leaders and we look forward to their leadership throughout the year.

Student Body Reps

Last year we introduced the ‘Student Body’. Students from each Tutor group in Year 7 and 8 form the Student Body as class reps. The process for selection will be outlined to students in coming weeks.  A group of Prefects with teacher support will run the Student Body. This group will provide suggestions to improve the Middle School; devise activities, which will increase student engagement beyond their Tutor group, which will allow students to broaden friendships and help promote class spirit.  We will be acknowledging these students at a separate Middle School assembly.

Leadership is everyone’s responsibility

As much as we have created a large number of student leadership opportunities in the Middle School, our emphasis is on leadership being a responsibility of every individual. We want students to understand that leadership is not a title but a behaviour; a behaviour that demonstrates care and respect towards others.  I believe good leaders are generous people, who consider others needs before themselves and that attitude, understanding and behaviour is what we are seeking from our students. In our teaching we work to ensure that every student understands the importance of demonstrating leadership.
