Across all leadership opportunities ākonga will gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a leader not just in our Catholic Ignatian College but in the wider world beyond the classroom.  Ultimately, our leadership programmes will equip our young people with a deep sense of what it means to the ‘people for and with others’.   Growing leaders who work together to build a compassionate and just world where all people can live to their full potential.  

As our College grows so too will our leadership model and the opportunities it presents.  Initially we will offer a broad leadership portfolio to encourage a high level of ākonga participation.  2024 Leaders have been identified through an expression of interest.  In subsequent years we will develop a process of selection for leadership roles and in  time, we will establish a formal model of senior school leadership.  Whilst leadership opportunities are present in all aspects of our college life, in subject areas, and co-curricular activities, as our College opens we will offer the following leadership opportunities:
