As a school which actively facilitates the individual growth of its students, the Student Representative Council (SRC) held its biennial ‘SRC Training Day’ on the 15th of March at Canley Heights RSL. This was a day for us to truly reflect upon what it means to be a leader, and the qualities and skills needed to create an effective means of change within the school environment.
The day started off with students reflecting upon key qualities that leaders should possess. This involved forming into teams where students worked together to solve puzzles and small jigsaws which challenged their interpersonal capabilities and critical thinking skills. Resilience, determination and vigilance were only a few examples listed out to be essential qualities of a leader.
This was the followed by an active SRC discussion, where we sat down in different teams to work on and develop ideas that could possibly be integrated into our school community. Ideas are flung around the room, with students engaged in the idea of the school’s involvement in ‘Samaritan’s Purse Australia’ and the fundraising for a school ‘mini-bus’.
Ultimately, the day was a successful event for which students learnt many valuable skills of what it means to be part of the SRC and how valuable these may be in any future profession.
