leadership is considered an action and NOT a position

28 September 2022

On Friday 23 September two students from Year 9 and 11 were successful in being selected to attend an exciting Leadership Day for future female leaders’ which was offered by the Defence Force Recruiting team in the city.

It was a wonderful opportunity to spend the day participating in activities that were designed to develop leadership qualities in our students as well as participate in team activities with other female students from surrounding schools.

The Leadership Day included the following topics and activities:

  • Presentations on careers in the Australian Defence Force.
  • Workshops and group activities focusing on identifying and developing our own values.
  • Learning about communication and active listening skills, which is essential for effective leadership.
  • Learning about developing a Positive Growth Mindset, and examining our thinking…is it “above the line (Being proactive in our approach) or below the line? (Having a fixed mindset)”.
  • Learning about our individual personality types.
  • Developing resilience.

We look forward to the next workshop that will be offered to our students in the future and thank the wonderful presenters from the Australian Defence Force Recruitment Team for hosting a challenging but enjoyable day out.
