We provide structured opportunities for student leadership throughout the entirety of a boy’s time at Trinity. Leadership opportunities exist in peer support activities, the House System, sporting teams and the outdoors. The Leppitt Leaders Course and the Somers Leadership Program are regarded as some of the most important aspects of the School’s curriculum.
Following the Year 10 camp, many boys wish to return to Leppitt to participate in the four-day Leaders’ Training Course, which prepares them to assist staff with the running of the Year 7 and Year 8 program. This is a voluntary commitment through which the students gain valuable experience in group management, leadership, personal organisation and communication skills.
As leaders, they pass their own skills and experience on to the younger boys and, through this process, learn much about group dynamics and handling responsibility. The younger students in turn benefit from the interaction and rapport with supportive, interested older boys.
