Student leadership in SJI is based on the school's Lasallian foundations. We embrace the six principles of Lasallian Leadership:
- To lead by example of service (Servant-leadership)
- To lead with a preferential option for the poor
- To lead through a cycle of observation, reflection and action
- To lead through being inclusive rather than exclusive
- To lead through dialogue rather confrontation
- To lead through proposing rather than imposing
The concept of servant-leadership encourages all of us to serve as we lead.
SJI Student Leadership Framework
The focus of the leadership development at SJI is centered upon the Lasallian values of Faith, Service and Community.
Students attend leadership camps where they come face to face with applying concepts learnt on how to be a good leader. During these camps, they have the benefit of mixing with other student leaders who are role models for them. In daily life in school, there are many opportunities for students to acquire and develop leadership skills. Leadership training is infused into the CCAs as well. This creates yet another avenue for hidden potential to surface and shine.
In the classroom, students may be nominated as Prefects (Probationary, Junior, or Senior), class committee members and/or subject representatives. At Fraternity level, Fraternity Captains may be nominated. Student Leadership roles include the following: Prefect EXCO, Fraternity Captain, CCA Leader, Peer Support Facilitator, Ace Leader, Peer Support Leader, Class Committee, Prefects, Subject Rep, Project Group Leader, etc.
