Young Leaders Program for Eastern Alliance and WMsea Clusters!

The Young Leaders Program gathers leaders from primary schools to participate in a rich, authentic leadership program. Moreton Bay Environmental Education Centre was excited to partner with two local cluster of schools to develop and deliver the program.
Participating schools from the Wynnum Manly State Education Alliance (WMsea) were Gumdale SS, Lota SS, Manly SS, Manly West SS, Tingalpa SS, Wondall Heights SS, Wynnum SS and Wynnum West SS. Program facilitation was assisted by the fantastic Junior Secondary leaders from Brisbane Bayside SC and Wynnum SHS.
Year 6 leaders from Belmont SS, Camp Hill SP&I, Carina SS, Dutton Park SS, East Brisbane SS, Greenslopes SS and Whites Hill SC completed the Eastern Alliance Education Cluster program ably assisted by Junior Secondary leaders from Whites Hill SC. 
The Young Leaders program is a journey for young newly elected leaders to provide them with the insights, experiences and confidence building activities to excel in leading at their school this year and beyond.
Sessions included:
·         Knowing yourself and your team
        Using Myers-Briggs and AusIdentities to develop insight into the way people learn and their behaviour when engaging in activities together with leadership styles
        AusIdenties is a uniquely Australian approach to personality profiling that is fun, effective and easy to do. Students, using questions and explanations decide how they:
§  Use energy
§  Gather information
§  Make decisions
§  Ways of working
·         Working in a team
        Elements that make teams successful
        Components of teamwork
        Teamwork activities to develop leadership and problem solving skills
·         Presentation Skills
        Public speaking skills
        Public speaking activities to develop confidence and competence
·         Connection to place
        Leadership challenge journey
        Importance as leaders of connecting with their ‘place’ (students, staff, school community, facilities, environment, history, the wider community and their local area)

It was amazing to work with these passionate young people who will be wonderful leaders in their school communities in 2018.
