ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
In order to afford grade 10 students the opportunity to take Leadership 10 and yet allow
them the opportunity to take an academic course load, Leadership 10 has been developed
in such a way that it can also be effectively taught outside of the regular school timetable.
ie at lunchtime.
Leadership 10 is an excellent introductory course. Leadership 11 and 12 has different
expectations for students. Leadership 10 however should not be a prerequisite course for
Leadership 11 or 12. Likewise Leadership 11 should not be a prerequisite course for
Leadership 12.
