Educational leaders panel – developing students into leaders

Chair: Jason Chung

Panellists: Roger Sheehan, Dr San-Chi Huang

Discussion on developing students global leadership capability will focus on  what a global student looks like and the importance of the interrelationship between leaders, teachers and students in building a whole school approach to global learning.

A good leader should have four qualities: ability, character, consistency, and a sense of humor. Warren Bennis, a master of leadership, once said, “Leaders are people who do the right thing; managers are people who do things right.” A successful administrator should have not only passion but the managerial skills to do things right, which is being responsible for the team.

Here are the methods Yuteh adopts to make our students into international leaders in the future:

  1. Curriculum:
  2. The recruitment of teachers:
  3. Textbook selection:
  4. Preservation of the best part of the Chinese culture:
  5. High expectations:

As a leader, students need to have a kind heart, understand the sufferings of people, the needs of society and be willing to stand by citizens. Therefore, we ask our students to do volunteer service domestically and internationally. In order to have a better life, every student needs to acquire the abilities of aesthetics and appreciation. Education should be all these aspects. We sincerely hope all graduates from Yuteh Private School can enter life with pride towards the avenue of success and become one of the elites of our society.
