Two weeks ago we had a class discussion on Leadership.

  • 1. Leaders have a positive attitude
  • 2. Leaders overcome adversity
  • 3. Leaders have perseverance
  • 4. Leaders have commitment
  • 5. Leaders work towards excellence

I am hoping that the students who read this post can come back on Monday and give an an example of how they showed leadership in any of the 5 key areas.

It could be a chore they persevered at and completed at home, or a team practice that they worked extra hard at. Maybe it was a disagreement with a sibling or friend but they stayed positive and didn’t lose their temper. Or maybe it was giving someone a hand just because they realized it would be helpful.

This is a great class of young people and at times they all show leadership skills. I look forward to hearing all about your interesting and positive weekend!

Cheers,

Mr. H

The science tests were returned today. The students were to file them here at school.  I like to keep each term’s work at school in case we need to meet and discuss their progress. Ask your child what they scored.

Last Friday we had a discussion about Leadership and what that means or looks like. Having leadership skills is a valuable asset in life. Leadership is also emphasized more in the new curriculum. We discussed 5 key qualities that leaders have.

  • 1. Leaders have a positive attitude
  • 2. Leaders overcome adversity
  • 3. Leaders have perseverance
  • 4. Leaders have commitment
  • 5. Leaders work towards excellence

My favourite quote from the presentation applies when a person gets stuck because something is hard: “It’s not a problem, it’s a challenge!”

Keep on reading, planking and practising timetables!

Cheers!

Mr. H
