Seven Habits of Happy Kids

This half of the term, our focus is on the second habit ‘Begin with The End in Mind’.

Leadership Corner

Feedback from some of the students who took part in the Leadership Training held in Kembu Camp from 26th – 27th October 2018.

The Kembu leadership trip was very good. It taught me things about leaders and leadership, for example, I learnt that Mahatma Gandhi quoted that ‘leadership to me means muscle but now it means that you have to be willing to devote yourself to serve other people. There were some activities like team building. In team building, you are split into two groups and you’re going to have to work as a team to attain the objective. I learnt more things than I would learn in school. And because of that, I now know how to lead like a secretary. Jayden K.

During Kembu Camp I enjoyed doing the activities and I enjoyed the food and working as a team. learned that a leader should always respect, listen and always pay attention. Alexis M.

My name is Nikita G. I am the Y4 class representative. I learnt that a leader is a responsible person, someone who is confident, help people out when they need. We had activities such as team building, and obstacle race. A leader should not give up, and sometimes will have to work in a team.

My name is Abel T., Y3 Student council leader. Last week we went to Kembu for the leadership trip. I learnt how to work as a team and what leadership is. It was fun and scary at night. Now I know how to be a real leader.

My name is Arianna W. I am the Treasurer. We learnt about integrity, that means being honest and principled. When you are given instructions and you do not ask questions, you just do them. I learnt how to do team work better than I did before. We went to the obstacle course, and were told that it was set up for the army. I enjoyed the trip. A leader is someone who takes charge of their responsibilities and leads others to do the right thing at the right time.

I am Y5 Student Council Representative. Last weekend at Kembu we had several activities to do. We had team building, obstacles and a presentation on how to be a responsible leader and how a leader is supposed to act, be honest and responsible. Tyler H.
