STUDENT LEADERSHIP

Student Leadership

Student Leadership is an important aspect of Hamilton Girls’ High School.  Every student at Hamilton Girls’ High School has the potential to be a leader.

Leadership begins with understanding ourselves, whereby individuals have the capacity to lead their own lives and consistently make wise choices based on sound values.  Effective leadership can be learned through developing both the character and competence of our students and by providing them with opportunities and training to exercise leadership responsibilities.

At Hamilton Girls’ High School, leadership opportunities are available to all year levels through Academia, Sport, Cultural and the Arts and through our vertical house system.

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own….And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”
– Dr Seuss
