Service & Leadership
Leadership and service are an integral part of a Mulgrave education.
While leadership and service activities often overlap, Mulgrave has distinctive programming that develops key skills in each area.
Thoughtful and Impactful Service
Service learning is an important part of the Mulgrave experience. It builds broader connections, expands students’ horizons, and deepens the values of humility and empathy. As a means to accomplish these goals, our students use the CAS (Creativity, Action, Service) programme which involves students in artistic pursuits, leadership, sports and community service work.
The goal of Mulgrave's CAS programme is to provide students with opportunities to contribute to, and draw upon, voluntary service experiences in school, our community and the world. As students fulfill their CAS portfolio requirement they participate in service as leaders who actively build community by connecting with others and who strive to become compassionate, altruistic global citizens.
There are many service and leadership opportunities for Senior School Students. The following are just a few examples:
Our student leadership structure focuses on giving back to one’s community. The emphasis is on a leader’s role in empowering others and offering a voice to those who are underrepresented. Central to the learning is the development of key skills to enable ethical leadership.
In the Senior School, our Student Council inspires students to lead in areas where they have a passion or interest, to find leadership roles that suit their style, and encourages growth. The model recognises that leadership is not simply an innate quality or gift reserved for only the most ‘accomplished’. All people, all students, can be leaders. We seek to nurture this potential through a student-centred and student-led experiential model, guided through mentorship, education, experience, and reflection.
