Pupils unpacking the difference between leadership and influence


Our annual Pasifika Leadership Day is hosted in the Kahika Centre with schools from across Christchurch attending the day. It is a highlight in the school calendar for the Pasifika pupils and boasts guests speakers from the Pasifika community, lots of laughs, and an admirable amount of pizza consumed. Pupils are inspired to stand proud in their hertiage and speak boldly with a voice that is rich in culture and influence.


The International College pupil leaders attend a leadership development programme throughout the year in the Kahika Centre. They learn valuable skills in cross cultural leadership that develop them personally for their futures in the countries they return home to or adopt.
