We provide many activities that assist students in developing leadership skills.
All students at IGS are encouraged to recognise that the best leadership comes from within the group and is not imposed on them. Our leadership activities allow students to consider social responsibility both within and outside the school community.
The tutor system is vertical, allowing senior students to mentor junior students in a group. Year 9 students also mentor Year 4 as part of their curriculum. Links are also made between specific senior and junior students for extra support.
Year 11 students are given responsibility in the House system and in House assemblies, and attend a mid-year Leadership Development Day. At the end of Term 3, students in Year 11 are elected as School Leaders for the House’s Art, Music, Language, Sport, Community Service and co-curricular activities.
