Y8 Leadership 2017 from SchoolTV on Vimeo.
Here's some pics we captured while away on our leadership camp this year! Wednesday 26th - Friday 28th May. Our group was slightly smaller this time around but still jam packed with a lot of fun and learning opportunities! We had a range of workshops where our students had to step and out as leaders and active team members.
Key phrases like 'Build up, positive self talk, service to leadership 'O le ala i le pule o le tautua', show support and we kept a focus on.
Why do we have camp? Naturally as year 8 students there is an expectation that students will step up and lead. This camp is support our students to do this. You'll all agree the act of leadership and even teamwork is not something all people do naturally, many of us need to shown and taught this! So camp is where we get to do this together without any distractions!
The building of self confidence to stand, speak and participate was developed during camp. We took part in - leading groups around rotations, taking charge in team challenges, showing 'kaha' when we needed to be brave. Being the hosts even during our meal times was a job all teams carried out which included prayers in all our various languages, songs and chants that always made meal time so enjoyable!
We have video that we are currently editing so you can see for yourself what we've shared here. A big shout out to all the year 8 students, their whanau, teachers for the great support you gave. We are very thankful! Fa'afetai tele lava. Andrea Tele'a
