We view service and leadership as important components of a young person’s development.

Our leadership program and community service initiatives are designed to instil leadership skills for students at all levels. 

Formal and informal leadership opportunities are embedded in the School’s academic, co-curricular and sporting programs, so students feel supported and empowered to explore their individual and collective leadership capacity. 


The Leo Club

HVGS established the Leo Club – an official program of Lions International –  in 2014. 

The Leo’s is for students who have a strong interest in helping others and who seek opportunities for development and contribution. Our Leo Club has a very healthy membership of 80 willing and committed young people.

Their support is far-reaching and all-encompassing and they play an important role in our School. 

Leo’s contribute in the following ways: 

  • At school: volunteering at school events, organising community events hosted at the School, assisting with inter-school events. 
  • In the community: activities have included tree planting days, music concerts for aged residents, community donations to community centres, assisting at community events. 
  • National and international causes: supporting fundraising efforts for a variety of charities, including Jeans for Genes Day, World Vision 40 hour Famine and Lions Biggest BBQ – the list goes on. 




Leadership & Service

We promote the philosophy of service-based leadership. It’s embedded in our School Values and is a part of what makes us tick.
