The Leader in Me

Oakleigh Grammar recognises the importance of teaching our young people the essential life skills and qualities needed to succeed as leaders, to contribute to their families, school and broader community.

Leader in Me (LiM) is an evidence-based, comprehensive school improvement model that empowers students to thrive in the 21st century.

Lighthouse Certification

Oakleigh Grammar is a certified Franklin Covey Leader in Me Lighthouse School.

Lighthouse Certification is a highly regarded standard set by FranklinCovey, attainable by every Leader in Me school. It is a significant benchmark and recognises the school’s capabilities to embrace the paradigms and practices of empowerment.

This achievement is testament to the incredible commitment and passion of Oakleigh Grammar’s dedicated staff, seeking to strengthen their own knowledge and application of The 7 Habits. Our educators are then best placed to guide our students to do the same.

Applying the LiM Principals at Oakleigh Grammar

The ‘7 Habits’ ethos is embedded across all subject areas. It is be demonstrated and modelled daily through The Leader In Me program, formal leadership positions and student voice.

The program begins in the Junior School and is supported throughout the Middle and Senior School as they embrace the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens to develop a common language and key leadership tools.

We have seen outstanding results from a targeted approach to student goal setting on an individual level and as part of a classroom community.  With the introduction of student accountability and weekly intentional reflections, our student understanding of the impact of setting and tracking goals has vastly developed.

These are the voices of our future leaders and we are excited to see how their life journey will be positively influenced by The Leader in Me at Oakleigh Grammar.
