“Striving to work as a team to make a difference and improve the school experience for all students.”
What student leadership opportunities are available at KNBS?
KNBS students are given the opportunity to lead on many areas within our school community. By experiencing leading certain projects and working as part of specific teams, students will be well equipped to take on and flourish leadership roles once they leave KNBS. The creation of different leadership pathways also contributes to the successful school environment at KNBS, as students can play a direct role in the decision making on issues around the school.
The KNBS 'STRIVE' values of Self-discipline, Teamwork, Resilience, Initiative, Vision and Endeavour underpin all the efforts and projects undertaken by the different student leadership pathways throughout the year.
Students will often be asked to relate and reflect on these values throughout their tasks.
