Student Leadership

At Australian International School Hong Kong, teachers, students and community members build the understandings of leadership together through the total curriculum and by the way we all interact and participate in school life. In this way students develop their own understandings and their capacity to lead and influence others in a responsible and age appropriate manner.

Our school leadership activities link with learning opportunities about citizenship and our democratic way of life. These experiences assist all students to learn about and exercise the rights and responsibilities of participating in a community of learners that value social justice. The many leadership positions at Australian International School Hong Kong provide excellent opportunities for students to apply this learning to real life situations in a safe and protective school environment.

Our Student Leadership program aims to assist the school to meet the following objectives:

  • Provide resources and opportunities for students to gain leadership experience using a range of mechanisms, including Head Boy and Head Girl, House Captains, the Student Representative Council, Environmental Committee and the Peer Support Program.
  • Maximise student participation in decision making and ensuring that principles of equity and fairness are reflected in school practice.
  • Incorporate students’ views into planning related to school environment and organisation.
  • Encourage students to have a sense of belonging to the school community

Finally, I would like to recognise all the Semester One student leaders who were presented at this week’s assembly. I hope you enjoy your new role and I look forward to working with you this semester.
