We will be having our Year 6 leaders retreat on Thursday the 10th September. This day is designed to develop our Year 6 leaders’ skills around servant leadership. The students are invited to come in free dress for the day as they undertake a series of workshops unpacking what is servant leadership. We complete this through a series of sessions that engage the mind, the heart and the hands of the students. The students will develop their understanding of what servant leadership is, then examine examples of modern and historical figures of servant leadership. The final session engages the students in a call to action, to be the hands of Jesus in taking action not just around the school but in the community as well. The day will be run by Rachel McLean, Libby Lange, Megan Pearce and myself.
The day is followed by the Leadership Mass at 9am on Friday the 11th of September. We invite the parents of our Year 6 leaders to join us in the church as we recognise our Year 6 leaders, as we all bear witness as they make their pledges and receive their leadership badges. The service will be followed by a small morning tea for the year 6 students, their parents and our visitors.
