encouraging all students to be leaders by serving others
Today's leaders require more global understanding, emotional intelligence, cooperative ability and an empowering approach. More than knowing how to lead, we want our students to be responsible, positive leaders who consider the interests of others.
Each year, our grade 11 students travel to Santa Cruz, Bolivia, the poorest country in Latin America. There, they meet and work with local children and youth, visit orphanages and rehabilitation centres, and build relationships with local missionaries. By experiencing the conditions of poverty, students gain an awareness that allows them to think critically about the challenges facing another culture.
SCS understands the importance of developing students into leaders as it has a positive impact on developing confidence and communication skills. Developing and encouraging students to voice and share their ideas opens opportunities for them to plan, work, organise and make decisions as part of a team.
