Leadership Induction and Commencement Ceremony
At St Stithians Boys’ College, the underpinning philosophy of our leadership programme is the concept of serving leadership that finds its foundation in the Jesuit Leadership Principles. Furthermore, we believe that every boy has the ability to lead, and as a matric, therefore, each student is awarded a leadership tie in recognition of their role-modelling and their influence as leaders and seniors in the College.
Our Prefects and Matric boys were inducted as leaders of the Boys' College on Friday 20 January 2017.
Through our Leadership Programme we aim to teach balanced leadership grounded in honesty and integrity. This system is entwined with our rites of passage, and the process of growth from receiving a symbolic bezant in Grade 8, when joining the school, to the awarding of the Saints Knight in matric. The values espoused in leadership are those that will enable our students to be responsible citizens who act and behave with a sound set of personal morals, and thereby lead by example in their spheres of influence.
The grade 8s and new boys in other grades received their Bezants at the Commencement Ceremony on Friday 20 January.
