Monday afternoon we welcomed the Hon. Nick Wakeling to Wantirna Primary School to present out Year Six leaders and our Junior School Councillors with their leadership badges.
It was a joyous event, in which our leaders were reminded of the priviledge it is to be recognised as a leader.
Nick spoke about remembering to:
1. Be a listener
2. Amplify the voice of the people you serve.
As principal I spoke with our students about what leadership looks like and what it doesn't. That the practice of leadership involves practise and that it is our job as principal, teachers and parents to mentor our young leaders and build their capacity.
We look forward to supporting our leaders throughout the year, providing them with opportunities, refining their skills and giving them a glipse into their future possibilities.
