Lead­ers step up

South Waikato News - - NEWS - By CAITLIN WAL­LACE

A chal­lenge of tak­ing on re­spon­si­bil­ity was eas­ily ac­com­plished by Toko­roa High year nine stu­dents.

The op­por­tu­nity arose for the young lead­ers to be­come men­tors to pri­mary stu­dents dur­ing a walk around Lake Moana-nui.

And they pulled it off, ac­cord­ing to Toko­roa High teacher and Stars pro­gramme men­tor Tony Jones.

Jones said close to 700 stu­dents from the high school and four pri­mary schools took part.

Whaka­maru, Cen­tral, David Henry and Strath­more pri­mary stu­dents ex­pe­ri­enced the lead­er­ship from the new men­tors.

Jones was im­pressed with how well the stu­dents led their groups.

Forty sep­a­rate groups took on the 2.5-kilo­me­tre walk.
