Leadership Programs

Leadership Programs

Leadership Programs

Leadership programs at each level of schooling offer our students a range of opportunities to discover and develop their leadership potential. Students are encouraged to participate in forums, debates, peer tutoring and mentoring programs, as well as service programs and outdoor experiences. These activities are carefully planned and offer age appropriate challenges for both individuals and teams.

Leadership Development

All students are provided with opportunities to develop leadership capacity through roles within and outside the classroom.

Peer Support

The Peer Support Program links new students with existing students across different year groups.  The Peer Support Program encourages confidence, friendship and trust among students as they settle into their new school.

Junior School Leadership

Junior School Captains run Junior School Assemblies, support Junior School and represent Northholm at community events. House Captains assist in the organisation and running of House sports, activities and sports carnivals. They organise to collect the House points from each grade and prepare and announce the ongoing House tallies at assemblies. The Agriculture Captains maintain the Junior School Sensory Garden and monitor the wellbeing of the animals.

Year 8 Leadership

The Year Eight Leadership Program promotes the development of independence, enthusiasm and commitment by encouraging students to take responsibility for a range of school activities, including input into Year Seven and Eight Services, Assemblies, school events and community service initiatives. Year Eight Captains and House Captains provide strong leadership to students in Years Seven and Eight.

Year 11 Leadership

The Year Eleven Leadership Program is a voluntary program that encourages leadership skills in young people. Students participating in this program take responsibility for the co-ordination of a broad range of service initiatives, including the organisation of charity events, assisting at school events and fundraising.

Service Learning

blah blha blah

All students have the opportunity to develop leadership capacity through their involvement in a range of community projects some of which have been acknowledged through state and national youth awards.

In recent years these opportunities for leadership development have been extended through the introduction of a Service Learning Week. During this week teaching staff and students from Kindergarten to Year Ten are involved in a range of service activities that promote an attitude of selflessness and greater resilience in our young people.
