As the girls move into the final year in the Junior School, the Grade 7 leadership programme aims to create opportunities for them to demonstrate their strengths, and it prepares them for the new leadership development model in the Senior School. The girls are put into groups, and have mentor teachers who guide and support them in their leadership roles.

Grade 7 leadership programme

The Grade 7 leadership programme aims to empower each girl to develop her innate leadership potential, be proactive and begin with the end in mind. She is encouraged to be responsible, become fully involved in community projects and perhaps initiate her own projects, be committed to all school activities and be loyal to the school. These are the qualities that epitomise a St Mary's girl.
