On Monday 25 February a group of Year 6 students attended the SCIPHA Student Leadership Day at Immanuel Lutheran College. The day was aimed at helping young leaders heighten and reach their potential to become strong and resilient people who are inspired to use leadership opportunities to make a positive difference, impacting their school and peers.
The guest speaker was extreme athlete Alyse Burnett, a past student from Immanuel Lutheran College who inspired students as they listened to her journey. The students thoroughly enjoyed this experience and their reflections gave insight into the benefits of valuable input into young leadership at GCCC.
“The most enjoyable thing about the leadership day was to get to meet new people and learn about being leaders. We also learnt how to take control of a situation.” Ronan.
“The thing I enjoyed about leadership day was that we learned how to deal with conflict and how to solve it. We also got to meet new people.” Paige
The program included a range of workshops that covered leadership skills covering developing a positive mind-set, relationship building, communication, team building, goal setting, public speaking and active listening.
Despite the terrible weather it was a great day.
