Student Leadership

Developing life-long leadership qualities  

At Australian International School (AIS)staff focus on developing life-long leadership qualities in all students through emphasis on the development of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Learner Profile. IB learners strive to be inquirers, knowledgeable thinkers, and excellent communicators, who have fair and well-guided principles. An open-minded, caring, and bold attitude is nurtured in pupils, in addition to instilling a balanced and reflective approach when applying knowledge. From Kindergarten to Year 13, enrolled students apply these attributes for their own personal development and in their relationships with others in the community. 

Leadership Qualities

Student leadership at AIS is encouraged in all aspects of school life. Whether it is leading an assembly in the Primary School, or taking on a formal student leadership role, there are multiple opportunities for developing learners to build confidence and develop leadership qualities. Student leadership gives students an opportunity to contribute positively to the school community, while building respect for themselves and their peers - a key component of the culture at AIS.
