We want each girl to develop her confidence, find her voice, discover what it is that she is passionate about and begin to explore the world around her.



Year 10

As the first year in the three-year Senior Schooling journey, the focus of Year 10 is each girl exploring who she is as an individual, so that over the next two years she can lead others; in Year 11 by leading the cohort and in Year 12 being the leaders of the school. As young women, we want each girl to develop her confidence, find her voice, discover what it is that she is passionate about and begin to explore the world around her.

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom”

Aristotle


Year 11

Year 11 brings with it increasing responsibilities for their academic program and for School Leadership. They take on key roles in their House, giving them the chance to evolve their leadership skills. They take the lead in House Musicals, House Plays and take part in committees that understudy the Prefect Portfolios. With increasing confidence in the roles, their aspirations also grow.

The Year 11 Character and Leadership Development Program is centered around the school motto, Non Nobis Solum – Not for Ourselves Alone and the philosophy of Servant Leadership. The phrase Servant Leadership was coined by Robert R. Greenleaf. To be a servant leader, one needs to: listen, show empathy, be aware, be persuasive, to conceptualise a positive future, show foresight, have a sense of stewardship, and be willing to contribute to the growth of their (school) community.

Year 12

One of our clear ambitions is to develop confident young women who are keen and enthusiastic to be involved in living a vibrant life. We are enthusiastic about seeing the senior girls develop ideas and lead initiatives where they can practice their leadership. The leadership we aspire to is one where the girls are confident about expressing their viewpoint. Modern women have confidence, good values and a style that is an asset to their ability to achieve significant goals.

The girls have many opportunities to practice and develop each of these attributes. We are proud of the ability of the senior girls to lead the school. They show maturity and judgement. Many of the senior girls have participated in a cultural tour with the school or been part of the school exchange program in Year 10. This has provided deep maturity to the group and they consistently show an ability to lead that displays judgement, alongside of the ability to connect sincerely with the community.
