Hume Anglican Grammar recognises that all students are capable of displaying leadership skills. In the Primary school, leadership is nurtured, encouraged and valued.
The focus of student leadership is to develop strong communication skills, the ability to listen and compromise with others, personal time management and to make considered, reflected and reviewed decisions. More importantly, to understand and demonstrate that leadership is a service to others and more about doing, rather than receiving. It is recognised that the qualities of leaders need to be modelled by significant others (teachers, older students and other members of the wider community), explicitly scaffolded and given the opportunity to be demonstrated by the students and nurtured during the students’ Primary school journey.
Informal leadership roles and opportunities for all students are constantly available. Students are encouraged to explore and promote the qualities of leadership in everyday situations, in the Homeroom, specialist classes, the playground and during special events and activities.
It is expected that student leaders should set an example in the manner in which they:
- Interact with and support others
- Support and model the Hume Anglican Grammar School Values
- Make decisions
- Communicate clearly
- Are proactive in initiating action in the service of others
- Contribute to creating a positive learning and social environment
- Present themselves in a manner that reflects a pride in themselves and their school
- Actively involving themselves in the life of the Primary School
It is my pleasure to introduce our 2024 Primary Captains and Vice-Captains.
