LAHC is committed to providing opportunities for students to gain valuable educational experiences, in the widest sense, through a broad range of activities organised by member schools. Annual student conferences have covered such diverse themes as leadership, diplomacy, mountain leadership and survival, urban ecology and the natural world, the creative arts, education for sustainable development, Model United Nations and other experiences which are not necessarily an integral part of their life in school. In addition, these conferences have been instrumental in enabling young people to consider global issues and form lasting friendships across national frontiers.
We also seek to involve students in the LAHC Annual Conference to work alongside school leaders and provide a complementary viewpoint on fundamental educational issues as seen from the student’s perspective.
Student activity extends to music and sport, with LAHC orchestras and/or choirs often meeting during the same week as the Annual Conference, and the organisation of sports exchanges between countries.
