iLead is a leadership program for Year 9 students who have been nominated by their school as potential leaders. iLead focuses on enhancing the student’s leadership skills through a range of outdoor and community activities. The 8 students will work together to further develop their leadership skills through a range of outdoor activities, practical skills & community involvement.

The iLead program is run during Term 3 each year by the Travancore School. Unlike the Operation Newstart program which targets students deemed to be at ‘significant educational risk’, the iLead program instead focuses on providing students opportunity to enhance their leadership capabilities.


  • Enhance self-awareness through investigating strengths, weaknesses, beliefs and values.

  • Develop effective communication skills, including public speaking.

  • Develop personal skills in goal setting, reflection, and positive wellbeing.

  • Understand how effective teams work and demonstrate capacity to work well with others.
