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.
Knowing yourself and your team
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
make teams successful
activities to develop leadership and problem solving skills
Public speaking skills

Connection to place
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.
