Students don't have to be school captains or house captains to be considered leaders.

Leadership is about the art of motivating, influencing and directing people so that they work together to achieve the goals of a team or broader organisation. It’s important for students to experience leadership opportunities during their schooling, to learn the art of building relationships within teams, defining identities and achieving tasks effectively. It also provides an opportunity to learn to identify and display effective communication and interpersonal skills.

At Sir Joseph Banks High School we believe all members of our community should be capable of exercising leadership in different contexts. The more leadership is encouraged, the more it flourishes.

Helping our students develop leadership skills is not just confined to formal positions. We encourage all students to be leaders. Students are given many opportunities to lead including in the classroom, on the sporting field, at community events and as mentors to other students.

Students who participate in leadership experiences are exposed to activities that strengthen their leadership and help them to develop more self-confidence and self-esteem.

As a school we are committed to giving students the skills and confidence they need to contribute meaningfully to society.
