Student Leadership

STUDENT LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE

Vision: Every GEM has the COURAGE and ABILITY to SERVE as they LEAD.

 

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,”                                                                                                Philippians 2:3

GM Student Leadership Framework is inclusive, and differentiated.

It is inclusive as all S1 to S3 students will go through a progressive leadership training that aims to equip them with core leadership competencies and skills (Tier 1: Leadership Acquisition).

It is differentiated as it provides students with multiple leadership opportunities, according to their interests. By taking on leadership appointments, students will further develop leadership competencies in Team Leadership (Tier 2: Leadership Experience).

At the pinnacle, we have the different executive committees, which will lead the student population in their various leadership wings; and the GEM Leaders who mentor and guide the yearly incoming Secondary 1s (Tier 3: Leadership Synthesis).

Leadership trainings are tiered, with varying rigor and intensity, based on students’ readiness.

The design of our student leadership programme is guided by Kouzes and Posner's Model in Transformational Leadership which provides a breadth of practices to develop student leaders - challenging the process, inspiring a shared vision, enabling others to act, modeling the way, and encouraging the heart (Kouzes & Posner, 1995, 2002). Students will use the tiered behavioural statements linked to each practice to reflect on their personal leadership journey in the school.
