Leadership Opportunities

Wolfville School offers a wide variety of formal and informal learning opportunities; providing our students with the skills and confidence they need to face the challenges of high school and beyond. Learning takes place both inside and outside of the classroom, and include numerous leadership opportunities and extracurricular activities.  Below are several examples of the leadership opportunities offered at Wolfville School.

 

Book Buddies.

The Book Buddies elementary reading program is extremely popular among students. Through this integrated grade level experience that pairs upper elementary classes with lower grades, older students have the opportunity to develop and demonstrate leadership skills and gain confidence. At the same time, younger students benefit from having a student mentor who assists them with reading skills, encourages a passion for reading and who often becomes a good friend.

 

 

School Advisory Council Student Representatives.

The Wolfville School Advisory Council includes representatives from all groups involved in our school community: administration, teachers, non-teaching staff, students, parents and the community-at-large. Students are elected from both the elementary and middle level to represent their peers at School Advisory Council meetings. They are responsible to bring forward concerns shared by their respective student groups and to share their comments and opinions on the many issues being discussed by the group. More information on the School Advisory Council is available under the Parent Organizations tab of the Parents Menu or by contacting Ms Graves, Principal.

 

Clarity Crew / We are Empowered

Clarity Crew is a leadership program for middle level students.  Our Clarity Crew members develop leadership, teamwork and organizational skills through opportunities to provide assistance for a number of school-based activities.  In the past, Clarity Crew students have served as tour guides for parents and guardians on the evenings of Parent/Teacher Open House and Parent/Guardian - Teacher meetings, supported special student activities such as the Holiday Bazaar, Family Dances and Fun Fair, and provided child-minding services to allow parents to attend important school meetings.
