We provide structured opportunities for student leadership throughout the entirety of their education. 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.
After the Year Ten camp many boys want to return to Leppitt as leaders. The four day Leaders’ Training Course prepares students 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 organization 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.
