2019 Student Leaders

Howick College is committed to providing leadership and service opportunities for students. This develops citizenship and contribution, and is another important part of our mission of 'inspiring a community of passionate learners' .

Service

Participation in events such as the World Vision 40 Hour Famine and Blood Bank provide students with the opportunity to consider the needs of others and contribute to their national and global communities.

 

Students are also have the oportunitiy to show community spirit in serving as librarians, school hosts, International Student Buddy or Enviro Group.

Leadership

Leadership is promoted throughout Howick College in two ways. We wish to develop people who can drive initiatives that they care about and lead teams, committees and councils and opportunities for this are provided in the form of House Leadership, House committess, Sports and Arts councils and event committees.

 

Equally importantly, we promote collective community efforts which help to develop the ability of students to become valuable, positive contributors to our local and wider communities by making appropriate, thoughtful and reflective choices.

 

By providing these opportunities for student led events and efforts, students can realise their potential to lead themselves in a responsible manner.

 

Each year we support and promote leadership with Leadership Week in-conjunction with the national Sir Peter Blake Leadership Week and Red Sock Day.  Inspirational speakers are invited to the the school assemblies and nominated students are presented with offical Sir Peter Blake Red Socks.
