Students Lead Leadership Training

In September, Wellacre’s Executive Council students attended a Student Leadership conference to reflect on their roles, responsibilities and the opportunity to effect positive change and developments in schools.

As part of the training, the student leaders were tasked with using everything they learned to create and deliver leadership training to their House Form representatives.

The Turing House team were the first to gather on the 8th November, with the Pankhurst and Lowry teams following suit. 

Turing House Captain Jack, Year 10, opened the training session with a presentation and discussion about leadership qualities and prioritising these qualities for the best results.

Vice House Captain Luke, Year 8, assisted by fellow Vice House Captain Tom, Year 10, asked Turing leaders to pinpoint their best leadership qualities.  He also encouraged them to look at improving those qualities, which they weren’t as confident about.

Sport Captains Ethan, Year 9, and Jack, Year 10, then led an interactive communications task in which students built paper aeroplanes and then wrote ideas for school improvements on them.  They then launched all the planes into the air and read out the ideas on the planes they caught.

All students then headed outside for a team building exercise on Wellacre’s 3-man skis! In order to cross the finish line first and beat the other team, the teams had to communicate and work well together.

Principal, Mrs Sharrock, said:

“This was a fantastic opportunity for all our Student Leaders to pass on their skills and knowledge, and build their own House bond.  They have all performed exceptionally well and their peers have taken on board the key messages about leadership, confidence, communication and teamwork. Well done all.”
