Here are some thoughts about what we learned during Leadership Week. We feel ready to take on the challenges we face as leaders of Selwyn House School.
I found the challenges of leadership week very helpful and I drew a lot from them. Now I feel ready to take on the challenges of 2013. -Sarah.
I have learnt how to organise an activity with the little year ones and twos. I also REALLY enjoyed going to the YMCA for the day on Thurs and Fri!!! The rock climbing would have to be my highlight! -Ella.
I’ve learnt how to organise an event being a leader of school by having 20mins of time with year ones and twos. I also really enjoyed climbing in the YMCA, learning to trust each other and pushing myself out of my comfort zone. -Chelsea
Last week I learnt how to be a good leader and how to stop the attention of a younger person from wandering off too much. My favourite part of last week was rock climbing at the YMCA! -Mackenzie
I have had a lot of fun learning about being a leader and it has been a lot of fun working with the year ones and twos. The rock climbing was challenging at times but it was a lot of fun. -Emily
I’ve learnt that leadership is harder than it sounds. A lot! Group management is one of the trickiest aspects, students can be very misbehaving and definitely NOT immune to distractions. -Juliette
I’ve learnt that the simplest games can make Year 1 and 2s very happy. You have to be a little bit silly to make them stay engaged. I also learnt that during rock climbing, you have to trust the one who is belaying enough. Although they may not be your best friend you still have to trust them. -Lottie
I’ve learnt that Year 1 & 2s can be very difficult if you don’t keep them entertained and grabbed by the games. -Sarah
I have learnt that I can organise a group of people to listen and not lose the attention of all year groups. I have also learnt how to belay people and pay attention to them while they are on the climbing wall. Abby
I have learnt that I can organise a group of people to follow instructions and listen to what I have to say. I also learnt how to belay people and keep them safe when they are on the climbing wall. -Lilli
I have learnt that I can organise a group of people. It is not bad to be a little bit silly and it makes them happy so they don’t go away and say they don’t won’t to do it. -Kate
Leadership Week was really exciting because we learnt lots of new things. I enjoyed sewing the poi and decorating them. This was challenging for me. -Sarah
