Even MORE leaders!

Hi everyone.

Well, we had a WICKED day at the National Young Leaders Day (NYLD) Conference yesterday - but one of our PR Councillors will fill you in about that, next week.

Today, however, we had a Leadership Assembly and boy do our councillors ROCK!

Daniel and Romeo were wonderful MC's for the assembly; Anihira, Kirstie, Cole and Tara handed out certificates; Mel filled us in about the Heart Foundation and presented them with a donation; Mere did a really inspiring speech on what it is to be a leader.

I am so proud of each of these students - well done!

At this assembly we had some exciting news:
*We announced another addition to our Student Councillor whanau: Dre (Room 1). Well done, Dre!
*We acknowledged out Kapahaka and Pasifika leaders: Glory (Room 1), Peyton (Room 1), Wytalia (Room 10), Nathan (Room 1), Kataraina (Room 20), and Justin (Room 1)
*We announced our Head Boy and Head Girl for 2015. These are Cole (Room 1) and Mere (Room 8).

Well done everyone!

Our Head Girl (Mere) and Head Boy (Cole)

Mud, mud and MORE mud. This is just one of the many activities that we did at Leadership Camp out at Camp Adair, Hunua.

We arrived on Thursday morning, many of us were jumping out of our seats excited about what was waiting for us beyond our village.

Activity One: Team Building
Throughout this activity, each group was challenged to complete each task with the resources supplied.

Activity Two: Initiatives
Here we had to work together as a group to problem solve through different tasks - such as the spider web, climbing wall, balancing on a unbalanced pole and balancing a seesaw plank.

Activity Three: Confidence Course
MUUUUDDDD. The three groups were challenged to do different obstacles and at the same time get REALLY MUDDDDY! While it was really disgusting, we all helped our team mates through and even the teachers got involved!

Leadership Camp

Hi everyone -

All our lovely school leaders are away at Leadership Camp this week. While they are having fun and doing some awesome activities, the students are also working hard at getting to know themselves, and each other, as leaders. Looking at their strengths and what really makes them unique as a leader.

Next week, one of our Public Relations Councillors (Tara, Mel or Daniel) will update you on their time at camp - along with some photos!

We are also in the process of selecting two more School Councillors from our whanau of leaders, as well as selecting a Head Boy and Head Girl. These will be announced at the Week 5 assembly - run by our leaders. Following this, we will update you with a complete list of our leader whanau.

Check back in with us soon!
