Lead­er­ship camps key for stu­dents fu­ture

Gatton Star - - EDUCATION MATTERS -

AS A part of their in­clu­sive fee struc­ture, Peace Lutheran Pri­mary School builds in a struc­tured camp­ing pro­gram.

This varies from a day ex­cur­sion and sleep­over at school in Year 1 to three day, two night camps in Years 5 and 6.

The most chal­leng­ing of these camps is the Lead­er­ship Camp held at Emu Gully in Year 5.

While the school has an over­all fo­cus on pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships and val­ues in­clud­ing re­spect, per­se­ver­ance, co-op­er­a­tion, hu­mil­ity, this ex­tends in Year 5 to in­clude the at­tributes of lead­ers.

Dur­ing the course of Year 5, stu­dents are en­cour­aged to show they are ex­hibit­ing the qual­i­ties of a leader.

Pass­ports are signed off by the teacher as stu­dents demon­strate spe­cific qual­i­ties.

These vary from show­ing pride in the school by wear­ing the cor­rect uni­form to ser­vice they give to younger mem­bers in our com­mu­nity.

Held to­wards the end of Term 3, their camp is an ex­ten­sion of the lead­er­ship pro­gram with ac­tiv­i­ties de­signed to chal­lenge one­self and a fo­cus on team­work and sup­port of team mem­bers so goals can be achieved.

Dur­ing Term Four stu­dents will con­tinue on their lead­er­ship jour­ney with pub­lic speeches and the an­nounce­ment of 2019 lead­ers and the rite of trans­fer at our end of year ser­vice.
