Forum on developing the next generation of leaders
Like-minded people with a drive to shape the district’s future leaders were challenged, inspired and entertained at a community forum.
Held at Amisfield Primary School a ‘‘Teacher Only Day’’, had professionals, community leaders, teachers and parents come together to learn and share ideas.
Guest speakers included psychologist Nigel Latta and people interpreter and author Alison Mooney.
Principal Bex Kilgoursaid the goal was to engage the wider community so they could be a part of the learning environment.
‘‘I wanted to provide the opportunity to have access to speakers. It’s bringing the outside into our community.’’
Kilgour said the day’s learning was about perspective and being able to apply strengths to get the best out of each other.
‘‘It’s about being able to apply your strengths so that it complements those around you.’’
Specialising in identifying different personality types, Alison Mooney shared information on how parents and teachers could better understand children.
Getting educators to think about purpose and why they are training children was at the core of Nigel Latta’s speech.
