We believe that contributing to and serving others is an important part of learning and character development. Developing Rangatiratanga or leadership capabilities is an important aspect of Tokoroa High School and something which many students aspire to.
Throughout the year levels, there are a number of opportunities for students to develop leadership such as leading classroom projects, representing one’s Whanau Group on Student Council and captaining a sports team.
Our student council has a lengthy history in developing leadership talents. The council has to manage its own finances and organise student activities and involvement. The mature judgement of our student decision makers over the years has created a pattern where our students regularly have an input into the running of our school. The school’s prefect body augments the student council and is a very visible section of student leadership.
