The school aims to nurture all students to be role models and servant leaders with a clear sense of agency. When faced with challenges, they remain resilient and are confident in leading others.
In NYGH, we adopt the Discover – Develop – Shine approach in Student Leadership Development. The approach focuses on catering to the different needs and potential of the students. Students discover about themselves and gain an understanding of self-leadership through class-level and cohort-level experiences. There are also opportunities for students to develop their knowledge, skills and values and to shine, for example Classroom Roles, the Leader Apprenticeship Programme at lower secondary and student-initiated projects.
Student leaders are guided by the philosophy of Servant Leadership and the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership. They develop their leadership knowledge, skills, values and attitudes through on-the-job experiences, workshops, seminars, camps, service-learning projects, cross-cultural learning, self-reflection and mentoring by teachers and seniors.

NANYANG STUDENT COUNCIL (NYSC)
The Student Council is made up of upper secondary students selected based on their exemplary conduct, all-round good performance in class and CCA, and the commitment to serve and lead.
The Service Leadership Direct School Admission (DSA) Programme seeks to nurture leaders who place service at the heart of leadership with a clear sense of agency. Students are expected to go through a four-year Talent Development Programme which provides varied authentic learning experiences to develop their 21st century competencies and leadership qualities. Through the four years, students will be nurtured through the school’s Leadership Development Programme and there will be opportunities for them to attend leadership training. At lower secondary level, students will be able to discover their leadership potential through these training sessions. At upper secondary level, there will be opportunities to develop leadership qualities through mentorship programmes and service to the school and community.
