Student Leadership Framework

The Student Leaders fall under the Student Leadership Framework which sets an hierarchy for all Student Leaders in the School. All students will undergo the Tier 1 training which is done during CCE lessons and Assembly Programmes. Tier 2 Leaders hold appointments and will undergo training specific to their roles and responsibilities. Tier 3 Leaders hold responsibilities beyond their classrooms and CCA. They may be engaged in Student Initiated Projects that benefit the school and outside the school. The framework adopts  the Kouzes and Posner Model for Leadership Values. The Schools ICARE values are also taken into account.
