Student Leadership Culture Thrives at Oakleigh Grammar




Oakleigh Grammar’s Principal Mr Mark Robertson was delighted to conduct the annual Student Leadership Induction Assemblies on Campus on Friday 19 February 2021.  

This year, rather than one Whole School Leadership Assembly, Oakleigh Grammar held three sub-school Assemblies in line with its adopted COVID-cautious approach.  

It was a special occasion not only for the students who were inducted, but also for the inductee’s parents who were in attendance, and more broadly, for the wider School community.

The School’s 2021 theme “I Can. We Will” resonated with their student body, as it reflected the smooth transition between On-Campus Learning and the Oakleigh Grammar Remote Learning Model.  All students were delighted to be back on Campus to celebrate with their peers at these important Leadership Assemblies.

The culture of Leadership within the student body at Oakleigh Grammar has been a hallmark of the strategic priority of valuing all students and providing student agency in a meaningful way. 

 The Leadership Program commences in the Junior School with Steven Covey’s Leader In Me (7 Habits of Highly Effective People) Program, which is accredited at Lighthouse Status, the highest level of accreditation offered in this framework. Indeed, Oakleigh Grammar is the only Independent School in Australia to have achieved this honour.  

The leadership culture extends through to the Middle and Senior Schools affirming the notion that all Oakleigh Grammar students have the inherent potential to demonstrate leadership.

The School’s Captains, Angelica Athanasakis and Alexander Logan, who were inducted this morning were quoted as saying “We are grateful for the Leadership opportunities afforded by our School within a nurturing and encouraging culture.“
