Student Leadership is not confined to a small group of individuals, as leadership potential is inherent within all learners. Student Leadership includes listening and being able to clarify the issues of the students they represent and advocating on their behalf. Student leaders have an increased sense of responsibility to help others and to model leadership principles and values. Trust, autonomy and relationships are enhanced through the development of leadership qualities.
Student Leaders are challenged to set high expectations for themselves, to feel motivated and empowered, to have a growth mindset regarding building their acknowledge and skills through effort and hard work, to be confident and speak up for all students, to contribute effectively to school decision making and to contribute positively to the school and local community and to the world around them.
