Senior Leadership Experience

Senior Leadership Experience
 
Picture this. You walk into P Block expecting to see a group of students listening respectfully to an older gentleman full of leadership expertise, but what do you see instead? Forty Year 11s and 12s dancing energetically with said older gentleman to a blaring “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”. This certainly set the scene for the day!
 
On March 30, our Year 11 Student Council, potential future leaders and our Year 12 Leadership Team participated in Bernie Kelly’s Run to the Roar presentation in P Block.  They were asked to think on their contribution so far to the school community and challenged to lose their fear and take on new challenges in 2015 (thus the dancing!). 
 
This incredible day was kindly provided free of charge to our students by the Longman Youth Leadership Program facilitated by Member for Longman, Mr Wyatt Roy, who also took time out of his busy schedule to visit the students and award their certificates of participation.
 
A big thank you to all the students who came along and represented our school so well. Hopefully, we’ll see our leaders and potential leaders running towards the roar instead of away from it, and if you’re not sure what I mean by that, just ask one of the students who attended.
