A large number of Grade 5 and 6 students presented speeches hoping to be on the 2014 SRC. A lot of effort was put into the presentations. Students discussed their strengths as leaders and their willingness to listen to others and help them to enjoy school.
Thank you to everyone who applied! Unfortunately many eager students have missed out this year. I would encourage you all however to continue to take on future leadership opportunities both this and next year especiallly in Secondary School.
Through the election process those who applied have improved their public speaking skills. You may find that you are more confident next time you speak in front of an audience.
You may be interested in reading the February edition of Connect which is an online magazine published by Roger Holdsworth. This magazine has many articles written by students and teachers that focus on Student Voice, Student Engagement and Student Decision Making.
Prehaps you would like to discuss one of the articles or some of the ideas presented in Connect. If so send me a post.
All the best everyone for 2014!
