School is the best ‘breeding’ ground for leaders. It is a fact that students who take leadership at school continue to be leaders even after leaving school. They take high positions in social work, politics and many other organizations. Therefore, teachers are aware that the grooming given in the school in leadership, influences the future lives of students greatly.
A school can create many opportunities for its students to get firsthand experience in leadership, though in a limited way, under the supervision of the teacher. Many students are capable of developing leadership qualities with some encouragement while some are born leaders. They have the in-born talent of being leaders where a little guidance would help them to improve quickly. This fact had been found to be true in schools frequently.
It is also observed that there are students who prefer to be followers than leaders. They do not mind taking lesser positions in an organization and give their full co-operation to the leaders. This factor is also common in the society as well as in schools.
CLUBS AND SOCIETIES
Student Societies provide numerous opportunities for students to enhance many of their skills; enhancing in-born skills is one of the three main functions of the school.
Apart from enhancing in-born skills, children learn many more useful skills such as leadership, team work, tolerance, courage etc. The experience they receive in conducting meetings, writing minutes and writing and following a constitution is useful when they are called upon to engage in similar work when they are adults. With such knowledge they would be able to take leadership at their places of work, educational institutions and the society in general.
Schools have been the pioneers in creating leaders through different school activities where Societies get the pride of place in the school. Most of the politicians discovered their capability of addressing a crowd, the loss of stage fear and the capability of working with seniors at school. Similarly many other qualities are acquired during society work.
