Tangara girls know that leadership is first and foremost about character: leaders must be people other people want to follow. Leading is not about personal ambition, but about serving the well-being of others.

In Primary there are many opportunities for leadership and service for all age groups, including Lost Property Monitors, Playground, Class and Library Monitors. These Monitors also serve on the School Council, working collaboratively with their teachers and the Head of Primary.

In Secondary, the key leadership positions are elected by the Senior students, together with their teachers, including the School Captain and Vice Captain, House Captains, Sports Captain, Debating Captain and the Community Service Captain. Each class also has an elected Class Council which meets every fortnight and reports to the Principal.

Leadership qualities are also developed through a range of co-curricular activities such as Mock Trial, Public Speaking, Debating, sporting competitions, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, state and national Leadership Forums, the Student Constitutional Convention, Youth Parliament and community service.
