Waitaki school students have stepped up into their leadership roles for 2013.
On Tuesday, students, friends and family of Waitaki Girls' High School gathered in the M K Dunning Hall for the student leader badge ceremony.
Waitaki Girls' High School principal Tracy Walker said the 2013 leaders were young women focused on being the best leaders they could be.
Working together, they would inspire and include others to make a positive difference in the school community.
"Leadership is about taking risks ... It's not just about the position, it's about action and ... enabling others," she said.
"I have high confidence in these women.
"We need good leaders - we have them. We need good followers - we have them. We're very proud of these young women."
Last Friday St Kevin's College celebrated the appointment their Year 13 Student Leaders.
Friends and family of the students joined in on the special occasion.
Father Wayne officiated the ceremony and Leanne Brookes provided the musical accompaniment. St Kevin's College has a round table model of leadership and these leaders will guide the student voice.
