Oakleigh Grammar encourages the development of leadership in all students, who are expected to present themselves and the School to the wider community in the best possible way, and to be role models for younger students.
Aligned with our School Vision and Values, we recognise the importance of students contributing in a positive way to their own and other peoples’ lives within the Oakleigh Grammar community and beyond, and not just whilst they are students at our School. The focus of leadership is on doing rather than being, and the principle of servant leadership.
We believe that leadership is an important area for student learning. All students are encouraged to take on leadership positions within the school and wider community as we believe that every student has leadership potential and can demonstrate leadership in different ways. Leadership is not a responsibility confined to the ‘badge wearers’ and is shared by all students and staff. We believe that the three aspects of leadership for each person to consider are:
- Leadership of self
- Leadership of others
- Leadership through service
