Leadership in Action

An essential part of a Harrow education is to provide a varied extra-curricular programme.

At Harrow International School Hong Kong, the Leadership in Action (LiA) programme immerses pupils in a vibrant menu of opportunities and challenges through sport, charity and service, expeditions, drama, art, music, and academic extension.

In essence, the LiA programme encourages our pupils to step out of their comfort zones whilst undertaking new experiences and challenges. Whether this involves acquiring debating skills through Model United Nations, sleeping under canvas for the first time, volunteering with one of our supporting charitable organisations, or playing netball in New Zealand, the programme has excellent breadth to provide a holistic education for all pupils.

Through the programme, our pupils develop the six key Leadership Attributes: Contributing positively to the community; applying knowledge with compassion; solving problems collaboratively; solving problems creatively; making fair and just choices; and facing challenges with determination. Pupils build new skills and resilience, and experience significant personal growth, enabling them to develop the attributes underpinning the School’s vision statement Leadership for a better world.
