Principles of Leadership

Leadership Streams: Principles of Leadership (definition)

The Principles of Leadership stream focuses on personal development. More than knowing how to lead, we want our students to be responsible, positive leaders who consider the interests of others. As we build a theoretical and ethical foundation for solid leadership, there are opportunities to discuss ethics, character and how to be a good leader.


Grade 9 Leadership Conference

Character development is the key focus of the Principles of Leadership stream and the SMUS leadership program as a whole.

The foundation of the leadership program is based on the following four pillars:

  • Service
  • Honesty
  • Respect
  • Courage

Lessons in moral judgement, ethics, values and leading with integrity are formally delivered through chapel but are also integrated throughout school-life.
