Eight of our Year 6 students were chosen to attend a student leadership programme run by Chris Allan and the Joshua Foundation. They joined the top students from other primary schools in our cluster: Addington, Thorrington, Sacred Heart, Cashmere, Somerfield, South Intermediate and us.
The children are given leadership theory and then set a series of tasks and challenges where they are assessed on their ability to communicate, make decisions, listen, collaborate, problem solve, manage time and organize. It's sophisticated stuff and many adults would struggle to complete the tasks with the required skills and commitment.
They had a great time with the children from other schools and thoroughly enjoyed the challenges.
