As we believe that every individual has leadership capabilities, we integrate learning about leadership into a broad range of academic and co-curricular programmes, encouraging our students to develop their minds and learn from their actions.
Drawing on a range of theories and models, we place a strong emphasis on wisdom and engaged action. This results in the development of leadership skills and integrity with a focus on the dynamics of the process rather than the explicit outcome of becoming a leader. In equipping students with the skills required to live with purpose in a rapidly changing world, we prepare them to think and respond in a constructive and ethical way to the dilemmas of our times.
Our leadership programme is embodied in the Nigel Peck Centre for Learning and Leadership, a world-class facility housing an extensive library, lecture hall and information technology hub.
Leadership in the Curriculum
Leadership development is formally integrated into the curriculum and co-curricular activities at all levels in order that our students develop ethical hearts, engaged minds and meaningful relationships that contribute to the community.
At Melbourne Grammar School, we value the significance of leadership as ‘service’ and the importance of teamwork within a strong ethical and moral dimension.
Through our Service Learning programme at Wadhurst and Senior School, the students are able to meaningfully connect with local and international communities through volunteering and philanthropic opportunities.
