LEADERSHIP IN GRADE 7
We start developing leadership opportunities by voting for class captains from Grade 5. The captain changes each term. The Grade 6 classes are each given the opportunity to work in the Media for a term, where team work is encouraged and they are mentored by the Grade 7 Media committee. At the end of Grade 6 the girls are assigned a committee for Grade 7. These include, Ethos, Playground, Media, Function, Sports and Cultural.
1. GRADE 7 COMMITTEES
The Grade 6 Teachers will allocate the members of each committee. The Committee will have specific duties to perform throughout the year . The committees will be announced at the Final Assembly in November. The committees will be run as follows:
