The Senior Section is piloting a new curriculum called The Leadership Programme (LP) starting August 2010. The aim of the Year 7-11 Leadership Programme at KICS is to successfully prepare students for leadership roles during their time at KICS and beyond, at university and in their lives and future careers. It also encompasses the development of a number of personal, social and health skills. 

We believe that effective leaders are inspirational, challenge themselves and others and have a responsibility to themselves, their peers, school and community. Leaders challenge themselves to model exemplary behaviour at all times and to take personal responsibility to reflect and improve when this does not happen.

In order to successfully prepare students for leadership roles we believe that the IBO Learner Profile attributes of being principled, balanced, caring and reflective are fundamental.

As part of this Programme we are giving Senior School Leadership Award Certificates.

The following students demonstrated leadership during the months of August and September.
