Learn to Lead
In Lutheran Schools we believe that we are all leaders – we believe our students already have influence, and our role is to build skills that enable them to be responsible, ethical and compassionate decision makers – both here in our school and ready for the world ahead.
At the Junior School, we have formal School leaders, Worship Leaders, Sport Captains and Student Parliamentarians and we encourage all of our students to recognise and initiate leadership initiatives of their own.
One of the initiatives is student-led lunchtime activities such as Art Club, Friday games, biscuit decorating and sports. In each of these cases, eager students have written a proposal to staff, and then implemented an idea which benefits the greater student body. The activities are led by students with teacher supervision and provides an extra curricular opportunity for interested children of all ages during the school day.
Our aim is to be able to action student initiated ideas where possible, allowing them to experience being a leader and watching the process play out as part of a greater learning opportunity.
