Student Leadership and Training

Members who show potential leadership skills and abilities are identified and given opportunities to attend school leadership training workshops in order to further develop them. They are subsequently given leadership roles and responsibilities in the executive committee to help the teachers in managing the ensemble and especially guiding the junior members. The end-of-year Guzheng camp is also student-initiated, and is mainly planned and run by the committee members. This undoubtedly provides a good opportunity for the students to develop their leadership skills.
