Servant Leadership

In the Senior School, as in the wider St Hilda’s community, students are provided with many and varied opportunities to practice Servant Leadership.

The philosophy of Servant Leadership was formed by Robert Greenleaf in the early 1970s. It is the leadership style thought to be practised by Christ. Servant Leadership moves away from traditional, hierarchical systems of leadership. The main concern of Servant Leaders is to serve others. Accepting a formal leadership position at St Hilda’s School is accepting the need to serve the school community by contributing ideas, actions, modeling of expectations and guidance. Every girl, whether a formal leader or not, should be striving to be a servant leader. All Senior School students have opportunities to develop their leadership skills though the Character and Leadership Development program.

Meet Our Student Leaders

Students leadership is highly valued at St Hilda’s School in preparing students to be well-organised, responsible and creative adults who are valued members of their professional, recreational and other communities. St Hilda’s also has many formal student leaders, demanding strong organisational skills.
