Student Leadership
The Wellness Fund - Developing Student Leadership to Support a Healthy School Community
The Wellness Fund - Developing Student Leadership to Support a Healthy School Community

School communities are more likely to be successful in changing the culture within their school if students are given the opportunity to lead that change. Student Leadership opportunities can help students to take ownership of and responsibility for developing a culture of wellness in their school. Empowering students as leaders allows them to be at the centre of decisions that affect them and gives them the chance to utilise their talents and passions to help transform their school communities.
