It is said that good leaders do not create followers but other leaders. Here at GCSS we strive to develop future leaders by creating opportunities for them to practice leadership traits and foster responsibility. With school organisations such as the George Charles Secondary School Cadet Corp, Young Leaders and Junior Achievement (JA), students can access leadership roles that can better prepare them for actual future leadership roles in their personal lives and communities. Great leaders are made not born!
