Leadership and Social Service | Ivanhoe Girls' Grammar School

Leadership and Social Service

From their early years in Ivanhoe Girls’, our students are encouraged to accept leadership positions. They are encouraged to show their ability to be responsible, to get along with others, to be confident, to organise and to lead.

Leadership experience is available through many formal positions in sporting teams, cultural pursuits, student representative groups and other activity areas where students are appointed or elected to positions of significant responsibility.

Our students take on the responsibility of helping others all over the world, by getting involved in many charitable causes, and participating in community service to assist our neighbouring facilities and local hospitals. They become compassionate contributors to their community and the world; committed to social justice, sustainability and philanthropy.

Some of the social service activities offered at Ivanhoe Girls’ are:

  • Amnesty International
  • Mustard (Christian Group)
  • Duke of Edinburgh Scheme
  • International Club
  • Library Committee
  • Red Shield Appeal collecting.

Student awards

Ivanhoe Girls’ believes in acknowledging the dedicated effort of students serving the School and the broader community. We recognise outstanding effort through a coherent and highly valued system of awards that supports the personal development of every student.

The School’s awards system shows the value we place on affirming and celebrating accomplishment gained through hard work, determination, team work and perseverance.

Cooerwull Centre for Leadership and Service

The Cooerwull Centre for Leadership and Service was established to enhance Ivanhoe Girls’ Grammar School’s core values of leadership and service and to provide a coherent framework for these.

The goals of the Cooerwull Centre are:

  • to enhance the concepts of leadership, teamwork and service throughout the School community
  • to develop students’ leadership, teamwork and responsibility skills and provide opportunities to practise these skills in meaningful ways
  • to provide authentic opportunities for genuine service to our community throughout the School
  • to uphold the values of leadership and service by providing a framework for formal recognition of student achievements in this area
  • to model that true fulfilment comes from helping others.
