Prep School Leadership
During 2021 we will continue to develop a culture of leadership within the Prep School. To achieve this, we will promote the skills and attitudes required for each and every student to recognise and express their leadership potential. This will begin with class and specialist teachers giving all students the opportunity to be leaders in small group activities. Then, throughout the year, further team building and leadership exercises will be explored through Physical Education and Health activities, the School Sporting program, and the Prep School Outdoor Education and Rock and Water programs.
The Year 12 Student Leaders also play an important part in the Prep School Leadership Program each year. The senior students visit classes when the Prep School Leadership Program is introduced. They speak to the children about their individual pathway to leadership. This includes recognising that this pathway is not always easy, and they would not always automatically win the roles they applied for. They discuss the qualities they believe are required of a successful leader and, importantly, the need for resilience when not selected for a role. The presentations from the senior students provide very meaningful learning opportunities for their younger peers.
The Prep School Leadership Assembly which was held on Friday 19 February provided a further example of the way in which the senior students mentor and teach the Prep School students. At the beginning of the assembly some of the Year 9 Prefects gave insightful speeches, outlining their understanding of leadership. Each speech was appropriate for the age group, unique in its content and certainly appealed to the children.
The aim of the Prep School Leadership program is to help the children understand that leadership involves a collaborative approach whereby leaders exercise their role in the interests of others. As we assist the children to develop these skills, we also want them to appreciate the link between leadership and service as we build on the children’s capacity to make a meaningful contribution to their community and society.
Congratulations to the following students, who will assume leadership roles and become valued members of the Prep School Leadership team.
