Year 6 Leadership Retreat
On Friday 4th June Year 6 participated in the St Joseph’s Leadership Retreat which included several sessions around leadership qualities and leadership in action. Miss Libby and Mrs Gear focussed on leaders in the Church and modern-day leaders who have been positive role models. Mrs Pearce led a session on the “flock of the geese” and how working as a team is highly effective. We were fortunate to have Rachael McLean from CES present an amazing session about Reconciliation and how Year 6 could represent this through iconology. The group worked together to design an icon specific to St Joseph’s and Weipa which looks at the journey of moving forward respectfully and the importance of partnership. It was a great day for all.
Year 6 Leadership Mass
On Monday 7th June, we gathered as a community to celebrate the 2021 Year 6 students being leaders of the school. The students had input into the planning of the mass selecting their favourite hymns and analysing the readings. All the students attended with their parents and the community to show that they are ready to be leaders of the school. Each child received a badge which they have continued to wear all week and read out a pledge to show their commitment to upholding the school values. The mass finished with a morning tea with the parents to celebrate this special milestone.
