Fostering Student Leadership

It’s important for students to experience leadership opportunities during their schooling, to learn the art of building relationships within teams, defining identities and achieving tasks effectively.” - Claire Ravasini

Students have multiple opportunities to become leaders at Kegonsa. Some of the activities that our students have actively led in our school community include:

  • Pajama Drive - collected over 20 pairs of brand new pajamas to give to students in need
  • Shoe Drive  - helped our Working for Kids Parent Group collect and organize over 2,500 pairs of shoes to donate
  • Planned inclusive Spirit Days such as “Inside Out Day” - allowing all students to participate without having to plan ahead

When students are in grades K-2 opportunities for volunteering and leadership occur mostly within the classroom and grade level. As students progress through the grade levels more opportunities for school wide leadership are available including: 

  • Safety Patrol 
  • Play 60 
  • Peer Recess/Lunch Mentors 
  • Library Leaders
  • School Podcasters (check out our school podcast!)
  • School Photographer of the day
