Student Leadership – developing Christian leaders

Developing student leaders who can disciple, mentor and lead others is a key aspect of student life at Maranatha. Based on the principle of servant leadership, students understand that to be a good leader they must lead with love using the life of Jesus Christ as their example. Our student leaders are encouraged and nurtured to set the example that others want to follow.  In doing so, they engender respect and build trust. Formal student leadership opportunities occur in Junior School where students may lead assemblies, progress through Middle School via the Student Representative Council and culminate in the Senior School Senate who are elected by their peers. As importantly all students have opportunities to develop their leadership skills through the service program and the House system. In the way teaching staff interact with the students and model Christian leadership Maranatha teaches students how to build positive relationships with each other and so help today’s students become tomorrow’s leaders.
