Gone are the days when leadership in Year Six was restricted to a few elite children. In 2003, Holy Spirit School embarked on a scheme that actively engaged all Year Six Children in shared, purposeful leadership.
Leaders do just that – they lead by example and by action. Children are asked to nominate for a particular leadership team at the beginning of the year – a team in which they have some interest/ability and could contribute to the good of the school by involvement in their preferred leadership team.
- Task Force
- Fund Raising
Each team has particular responsibilities and reports to the whole school when necessary. Since this plan was initiated, it has met with wonderful support from parents and staff alike.
Shared leadership has been sucessfully linked to shared responsibility at Holy Spirit.
