Leadership/ Leadership / Michaelhouse Life
Leadership training forms an integral part of the education programme offered at Michaelhouse.
With a view to encouraging growth and individual leadership skills, all boys are regularly involved in developmentally appropriate tasks and experiences.
Extended hikes and dynamic adventure challenges are designed to encourage teamwork and cooperation and to foster self-discovery and esteem. They focus on building confidence in each boy so that he is able to assume a leadership role with confidence.
Numerous leadership roles are created through formalised School Prefect, House Prefect and Student Leadership systems. Specific programmes are run for those involved in leadership positions in the School. Together they form a fundamental part of the programme designed to nurture the leaders of tomorrow, and to build an environment where junior boys are inspired through the example of their seniors.
