The Leadership Committee have met and have decided on the following for next year.

We shall have 4 leadership seminars in 2015 – all following the theme “A fixed Growth Mindset”. We will use the notice board in the library foyer closest to Mr van Selm’s office as the Leadership Board. I will design the year’s “Theme Poster” and place on the board and the 4 of us will place interesting leadership articles upon this board. Apart from the 1st Seminar (only for Grade 11’s) each will follow this theme and the guest speakers will be informed about what the previous speaker spoke about, so as to have continuity for the year.

Each boy who attends these seminars will be allowed to invite one parent. We hope that this will spark “family discussion” and will be a talking point around the dinner table or in the car. This will also spread the word through the parents about this Leadership program at SACS. After each seminar, we will attach the key points of the seminar to the Headmaster’s Newsletter, hence extending the discussion.

Leadership Seminars:

Term 1 – Grade 11

We will introduce the school leadership program through an activity. Once this has been discussed, the current Head Prefect will present the same presentation he gave to the SMT before he was selected as Head Prefect.

Grade 9 – 12
