A sense of belonging sets our students up for success. To foster this sense of community, GMA Academy has weekly assemblies to share information, celebrate achievement, set whole school goals and open up a safe forum for dialogue and discussion. Every month we honour 2 students for excellent achievement in academics, social development, kindness, arts, sports and leadership.
Leadership opportunities are rich and varied for our older students. As they mature and develop confidence in their abilities they are able to take on a variety of roles in the school. Younger students benefit from mentoring by older peers as much as the senior students enjoy being role models.
Students can take on leadership roles in a variety of situations at GMA Academy and we can ensure that the students feel safe and confident in taking leadership in the realms in which they feel confident. Over time they have increasing opportunities to develop their leadership skills and interests in academics, sports, outdoor adventure, arts, music and more.
