Student Leadership

Dunman High School aims to develop Dunmanians as Leaders of Honour who will Care, Serve and Lead. We believe that character development is the central tenet of leadership. With this in mind, a Student Leadership Development curriculum has been designed to secure the base by providing opportunities for every Dunmanian to learn about leadership while stretching the most capable of our student leaders through a series of leadership development programmes.

Adopting a spiralled approach, Lower Secondary students are introduced to fundamental leadership skills and knowledge through programmes that foster the development of self-awareness and relationship management competencies. At the Upper Secondary and Senior High, students put their leadership skills to practice as CCA Leaders and Student Body Leaders such as the Student Council.

The Student Council is a cohesive student leadership organisation that works closely with various stakeholders to enrich the lives of Dunmanians by inspiring positive changes and fostering a family culture in the school. Student Councillors are given opportunities to develop their leadership abilities and core competencies through the planning of major school events and student-initiated activities. In caring, serving and leading, student councillors are able to leverage on their strengths to unleash their potential, experience the fulfilment that comes with being a servant leader, and be motivated to further their leadership journey. A differentiated programme, Dunman High Leadership Programme (DHLP), is developed to enrich and value-add to their leadership experience from Year 4 to Year 5 through varied platforms like dialogue sessions, workshops and mentoring. The purpose of the DHLP is to ensure that students who are high performing and have high potential are able to maximise their capacity in leadership so that they are ready for an array of opportunities that come their way after graduating from DHS. Students in the DHLP represent student leaders who embody high performing and high potential qualities in academic excellence, CCA achievements, leadership qualities and exemplary character. The DHLP is offered from Year 4 and student leaders in the DHLP will graduate into the DHScholars Programme, an exclusive programme for Year 6 students, such that a multi– pronged approach can wholly develop our student leaders.

The DHScholars Programme complements the DHLP by supporting our student leaders in the area of scholarship and higher education application. It is a structured mentoring programme that aims to provide participants with more opportunities to explore scholarship and higher education options, and eventually make an informed decision about them. Through mentorship and a range of developmental activities, the programme aims to strengthen students’ scholar attributes, and to refine their relevant skills for scholarship and higher education applications.

Through a curriculum that is intentional in focus and spiralled in approach, we believe that this would prepare Dunmanians to rise up and tackle challenges in their journey as a leader beyond school.

我校旨在培育学生成为“关怀”、“服务”与“领导”学校以及社群的未来栋梁。我们笃信品德发展是领导能力培养的核心,故设计并推行学生领袖培育课程,一方面为全 校学生提供基础的领导能力培训,另一方面鼓励领导能力特出的学生肩挑大梁。

我校以循序渐进的方式,首先为初中低年级学生提供入门级的领导培训,以培养学生的自觉意识和人际关系管理能力。到了初中高年级以及高中阶段,我校则为学生提供各种机会,让他们将先前所学,以社团领袖、学生组织领袖的形式付诸实践。其中,学生理事会便是众学生领袖组织中的代表性组织。它通过与校内及校外合作伙伴的协作,优化德明学生的学习生活,培养德明校园团队精神。

在锻炼学生理事会学生成员领导能力和素质方面,学校提供机会,让学生参与策划校方重要的活动项目,以及推动学生自发组织活动。在“关怀、服务和领导”精神培养方面,学生理事会成员能有机会发挥自己的优势,发掘自己的潜能,并体验作为一个服务领导者所带来的满足感,进而得到激励,并继续其领导的征程。

领导能力更强的学生,则可通过参与德明领袖培训计划(DHLP) ,在中四到高一阶段,通过对话会、工作坊、指导等方式和平台,强化领导能力。此德明领袖培训计划的目的,是为了确保高素质和有潜能的学生在领导能力上得到最大限度的提高,为他们未来迎接德明毕业后的一切机会做好准备。德明领袖培训计划为中四及以上年级的学生而设。此计划下的学生,是学术、社团活动或领导才能方面的模范学生领袖。学生在完成培训后,将在高二年级直接进入特设的德明奖学金计划(DHScholars Programme)。这样多管齐下的方式,使学生领袖得到层进式和系统化的培养。

纳入德明领袖培训计划的学生,在德明奖学金计划下,将能在奖学金和高等教育学院的申请方面得到有力的帮助。德明奖学金计划是一套系统化的培训辅导计划,旨在让学生更了解奖学金和高等教育学院的选择,并最终做出明智的筛选决定。此计划通过辅导和一系列培训活动,培养学生学者气质,为他们申请奖学金和高等教育学院做好相关的准备。

通过上述目标明确、循序渐进的方式,我校期望所有学生都能够成为社稷栋梁,日后服务社会,回馈国家。
