On Friday afternoon a few weeks ago we held our first Leadership Training session for Year 6 leaders. It was delightful to see Year 9 students, who were the first to receive leadership training themselves when they were in Year 6, giving up their time to run training activities for the current Year 6.
1. One group chose a student to be blindfolded. They then took turns to direct them through a maze marked out on the floor with masking tape.
3. Lastly students lay on the floor in circle with their hands crossed over with the people next to them. They then had to tap the hands in order around the circle - much harder than it sounds! There were also signals to reverse the direction and other challenges requiring concentration, attention to detail, teamwork and cooperation.
The students had fun while thinking about and practising skills needed to be successful leaders. Thanks Mrs Gaskell and Year 9 students!
