Leadership skills are essential for personal growth and success in today’s world. Our students can enhance their leadership abilities through various roles such as participating in Sports Teams, Assembly Team, Design Team, News Team, Drama Team, House competitions, Students Council, or taking on different roles, such as Ambassador or Chronicler.
Twice a year, every student aged 4 up will have the opportunity to take the lead in presenting their own learning and progress to their parents and teachers.
This type of conference allows students to take ownership of their learning and to communicate their understanding to others.
It also provides an opportunity for parents and teachers to see the student’s progress and to have a deeper understanding of the student’s strengths and areas for improvement.
Student-led conferences are used our school as a valuable tool for promoting student engagement and empowerment in the learning process.
Leading by example
As students take on leadership roles, it is important for them to not only lead by example, displaying behaviours fit to our school values, but also to take responsibility for their learning environment.
One way for students to do this is by participating and inspiring others, teachers, staff, parents, to participate in campus maintenance, by brooming and picking up leaves, for instance.
This not only helps to keep the school looking clean and presentable, but it also teaches students the value of taking care of their community and being responsible citizens.
Creating a culture of responsibility and respect for the learning environment does not only benefit the students but also the whole school community.
Big Brother Programme
The Big Brother programme is an innovative, student-led programme that makes it possible for younger students to be taught by their older peers.
Students from upper grades are mentored by their teachers and prepare for these sessions to include as many elements as possible for an outstanding lesson, from introduction of new concepts, to assessment techniques and creating feedback opportunities.
Once every two weeks, students in Primary and Secondary gather to celebrate success, share ideas, meet guests and enjoy the feeling of togetherness.
School Assemblies are events 100% coordinated by students, where their ideas and opinions are heard, noted and valued.
Our school Assemblies are a mixture of five basic ingredients:
Supporting school curriculum by being built around a related theme;
Being filled with valuable messages and lessons;
Encouraging variety of expression (through music, dance, arts, drama, stand-up comedy, presentations);
Inviting personalities to speak according to children’s interests;
Celebrating students` success both academically and on a personal development level by validating the idea that we expect progress, not perfection.
