Leadership at Ngaio School


We value and promote student leadership at Ngaio School. Students across the school are provided with opportunities that encourage them to both lead their peers and take on school-wide responsibility.


Student leadership is promoted across the curriculum in areas such as sport,  the arts and ICT. Students are also given leadership roles in extra-curricular activities and across syndicates, at student led syndicate assemblies.


Year 5-6 students take school-wide responsibility as bell monitors, road patrol montiors and as sushi/subway monitors.


Senior students demonstrate support and leadership to the younger students school through their involvement in programmes such as: buddy reading tutors, lunchtime buddies, and as MacAttack leaders.


Student Leaders in years 4-6 represent their class on the Ngaio School Student Council and work together to provide ‘student voice’ to on-going school wide projects.


Our Year 6 leadership group, made up of six student leaders, work alongside the student council providing schoo-lwide activities and events.    



We have a friendship bench in the playground to ensure that everyone is well cared for and included.
