Student Leadership Programme


The Brooksian Leadership Framework

Every Brooksian a Leader with a Champion Mindset


Vision & mission

The vision of the Brooksian Leadership programme is ‘Every Brooksian a Leader with a Champion Mindset’.  This vision is aligned to the schools’ vision of ‘Every Brooksian a Champion, impacting the community.’  The premise of the Brooksian leadership programme is that everyone has the potential to be leader and nurturing student leadership is an important aspect of character development.


A tiered approach to Student Leadership


The school adopts a segmented approach to Student Leadership with the aim to develop able student leaders for the community. The Brooksian Student Leadership programme focuses on three domains of leadership - Personal, Peer and People with the target group being the general student population, class and CCA leaders and Student Councillors respectively.


Development Model

Our approach to leadership development includes attempting to teach students a set of practices (or skills) that James Kouzes and Barry Posner, authors of The Leadership Challenge, refer to as the “five practices of exemplary leadership" and corresponding ten commitments. The following are 5 practices and 10 commitments:

Model the Way

    1. Find your voice by clarifying your personal values.
    2. Set the example by aligning actions with shared values.

Inspire a Shared Vision   

    1. Envision the future by imagining exciting and ennobling possibilities.
    2. Enlist others in a common vision by appealing to shared aspirations.

Challenge the Process

    1. Search for opportunities by seeking innovative ways to change, grow and improve.
    2. Experiment and take risks by constantly generating small wins and learning from mistakes.

Enable Others to Act

    1. Foster collaboration by promoting cooperative goals and building trust.
    2. Strengthen others by sharing power and discretion.

Encourage the Heart

    1. Recognize contributions by showing appreciation for individual excellence.
    2. Celebrate the values and victories by creating a spirit of community.

 

Values

The Brooksian Leadership Framework is anchored by the values of the school which are Graciousness, Integrity, Fortitude, Teamwork, Empathy and Discipline. These values complement the various skills that students learn during their leadership journey in Northbrooks and the various leadership plaforms provide Brooksians with the opportunity to exemplify these values.
