Gault shares life recipe

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

More than 100 pri­mary and in­ter­me­di­ate pupils from six Porirua schools con­nected with oth­ers from around Welling­ton for a day of lead­er­ship in­spi­ra­tion.

Pupils from Pa­pakowhai, Pau­ata­hanui, Post­gate, Rangikura, Tairangi, and Wind­ley schools went to the Na­tional Young Lead­ers Day on May 15 and heard from in­spi­ra­tional New Zealand lead­ers, in­clud­ing Masterchef New Zealand’s Si­mon Gault.

‘‘Back your­self, don’t be shy, take ad­van­tage of op­por­tu­ni­ties and give ev­ery­thing 105 per cent,’’ Gault said.

‘‘Whether you are suc­cess­ful or not is de­ter­mined by how you act and be­have.’’

‘‘Peo­ple be­gin to form opin­ions as soon as they meet you – al­ways per­form your best and be proud of who you are.’’

The event is now in its 15th year and sparks lead­er­ship po­ten­tial by equip­ping young­sters with the skills to lead them­selves and oth­ers well.

Mo­ti­va­tional talks and in­ter- ac­tive ac­tiv­i­ties are part of the event pro­gramme.

A high­light of Gault’s talk to the stu­dents was an in­ter­ac­tive dis­play with liq­uid ni­tro­gen.

Event or­gan­iser Ce­cilia Tuala said feed­back from schools and stu­dents showed the day helped young peo­ple re­alise their lead­er­ship po­ten­tial.

The event is run by non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion, The Par­ent­ing Place.

More than 110,000 New Zealand stu­dents have at­tended a Na­tional Young Lead­ers Day.
