All students at St Andrew’s Senior School develop leadership skills through workshops, seminars, lectures, clubs and societies, on the sports field, in the boarding houses and by taking on roles of responsibility. We aim to equip students to become young people of influence and integrity.
In Years 12 and 13, all students study for ‘The Turi Leadership Award’, designed to strengthen and develop our mission to build and mould the next generation of leaders, with integrity and vision for East Africa. It is a rigorous two-year university accredited diploma course involving self-reflection, a dissertation on leadership, a presentation to senior teachers and an interview with a member of the school’s Leadership Team.
Every student is expected to be involved in community service programmes, many of which are based in the community around the school in the Turi and Molo area. The level of personal development attained by students taking part in these programmes is remarkable.
