The Intermediate Student Leadership Program is for Grade 7 and 8 students at Queen Elizabeth Public School in Belleville. With a focus on teamwork, collaboration and inquiry the program offers student driven learning that will engage students with the Ontario Curriculum. Connecting curriculum with leadership opportunities in our school, community and globally will allow students to learn the value of their voice and ability to create change with their actions.
Through active citizenship, students will identify issues impacting
children and take action to create positive change at the school,
community and global levels e.g., organized spirit days and Christmas Sharing, raised money for families in Kenya.
Students will use a variety of media sources (e.g., assemblies, social networks and technology) as a means to communicate, influence change and share their learning.
Students create an extensive leadership portfolio that helps them identify key qualities of a leader, develop individual learning goals, monitor their learning and reflect on their next steps. Students will also use their portfolios regularly to share their learning with a variety of audiences, celebrate their accomplishments and plan for their participation in leadership activities at high school and beyond.

"In total, the food ministries rely on up to 180 volunteers to maintain the programs. Hammond said the four Queen Elizabeth students were “jumping right in” and volunteering for the tasks.
Egerton Boyce, city councillor and parent-volunteer with the Student Leadership Program at the school, helped out at the church as well. The program is in its second year. It is for Grades 7 and 8 and students who are required to apply to participate.
“It’s a program that provides the kids the opportunity to get out in the community and assist with different programs,” said Boyce, noting the kids have also visited Gleaners.
All students in the program take turns visiting and helping at the various locations. They’ve also visited the water treatment plant to learn about city infrastructure.
“It’s an extremely important program because it makes the kids aware of what’s going on in the community, it makes them model volunteers in the community,” said Boyce. “These are our volunteers now and in the future.”
“This is a group of kids that are very eager to learn and participate and not sit back and watch, they want to participate".
