Our New Leadership Program: Leadership Matters

Introducing our new bespoke Leadership Program: ‘Leadership Matters’.

It’s named after Muriel Matters who was studying at university in Adelaide when our School was founded in 1894, the same year women in South Australia gained the right to vote. Muriel went on to campaign courageously for female suffrage in the UK, and as such, her legacy inspires the values and skills we wish to instil in our girls today.

Our Leadership Program is based on research from academic papers on student leadership from around the world, as well as an audit of best practice from national and international schools. We have arranged the program into four domains: Self-Leadership; Fostering Positive Relationships; Goal Achievement; Taking the Lead – Taking Action.

Leadership Matters closely aligns with our Career.Ready program and our #EMPOWHER wellbeing platform. Core content has been tailored for our students across Years 7 to 11, and we hope to reinforce to all of our girls that everyone can experience and share moments of leadership.

At Saints Girls, Leadership Matters.
