Students cool off after big year of achieving
STUDENT leaders from Biboohra State School and Far North Queensland enjoyed a rewards day to celebrate all their accomplishments during the year.
The day was held at Mt Molloy State School with students gathering to make pizzas and enjoying a refreshing creek swim.
It was not all rewards for the students, they had the chance to present a speech outlining their experience and challenges encountered during the year.
Biboohra State School acting principal Ruth Ernst said she was extremely proud of the two Biboohra students.
“Biboohra’s Year 6 students Ev-Lucy Findley, 11 and Brianna Bustato,11 represented out school and have both grown as leaders. It was rewarding to see the development of their leadership skills,” she said.
“We like to support these skills which can provide success in what they pursue in the future.”
Ev-Lucy and Brianna said they had enjoyed their journey and how much they had achieved throughout the year.
“At the start of the year it felt great to be the one in charge but towards the end it felt even better to give someone else a go for a change and delegate jobs to others,” they said.
When describing what they thought a leader did, they said “a leader is one that knows the way, goes the way and shows the way.”
They both hoped they have had been a great leader and role model for other students this year.
The students at the beginning of the year attend Tinaroo Environmental Education Centre (TEEC) to develop their personal and social capabilities.
There is a three day camp which focuses on 10 leadership skills such as listening, delegating, making decisions and communication.
During terms 2 and 3 TEEC teacher visits the students who share projects and demonstrate their skills by hosting a tour around their respective school.
