Leadership Programme

Hōtaka Ārahi

At St Andrew’s College we pride ourselves on instilling skills and values, which will help our students to become the business and community leaders of tomorrow. We provide many opportunities for them to develop and demonstrate leadership qualities in the Middle School.

Leadership opportunities and positions of responsibility are offered to students in the Middle School. Middle School Leaders perform a variety of important leadership and service functions within the Middle School. Students must be able to work well as part of a team, relate and respond well to a wide range of other students, and be reliable, responsible and co-operative in a leadership role.

Being appointed to one or more of these roles, however, is the easy step – becoming a successful leader is the challenge. Leadership is about getting people to gather around a shared vision and then going with them on the journey to make that vision a reality. Great leaders understand that it is not about personal glory or positions or titles. Leadership requires humility, clarity and courage.

“I still remember feeling very nervous, as it was my first day in Middle School and I didn't quite know what to expect. The peer support leaders helped us settle in and feel more comfortable in our new surroundings. They also did a great job at helping us to all get to know each other, and make new friends.”
Emma Williams (OC 2016)
