Head of Secondary Fiona Johnston Shares Her Thoughts on Leadership

Published by Jessica Anne Tay

Our 2018/2019 School Prefects were inducted into their leadership positions on 8th August at our Prefect Induction Assembly. This assembly holds significant value to us as a school community, as we formally appoint the students that our students and staff have chosen to lead our school.

At the Induction Assembly, I shared with the students inspiring leadership stories in which an individual’s action had a lasting impact and influence on others, influencing how people think, act and respond. Inspiring leadership comes not just from decision making and strategy. It comes from risk taking, going against the grain, often when one is driven by a higher cause, a deep care for others and/or a complete conviction that they are acting for the greater good.

Sharing stories of leadership through the lenses of compassion, level headedness, survival, inspiration, politics, camaraderie, and taking a stance, prompted our students to reflect and think about what sort of a leader, and person, they aspire to be.

I wish the incoming Prefect Team all the best for their year ahead and encourage them to be curious, not afraid to try new things, collaborate and align their passion with purpose. It is then that they can truly achieve great things. I trust they will be guided by our values - Respect, Achievement and Opportunity as they lead our magnificent school. I know that they will honor our school’s past and, in good faith, build on the future.

Australian International School, Singapore

The Australian International School is the only southern-hemisphere international school in Singapore that offers an Australian curriculum-based global education for students from the age of 2 months to 18 years.

This truly international education begins with the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IB PYP) from Preschool to Year 5, Australian Curriculum for Years 6 to 8, Cambridge IGCSE in Years 9 and 10, and the Higher School Certificate (HSC) or International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB DP) for Years 11 and 12.

Australian International School has a vision to be known internationally as an institution which represents educational excellence in all aspects of its operation. Our school philosophy commits us fully to the notion of a holistic, rounded education, which cherishes the arts and sports as well as academics as essential dimensions of each student’s education. We are equally committed to teaching our students to have a moral commitment to making our world a better place as reflective, caring, knowledgeable and principled people. At AIS, each child is special, each is important.
