Ms Cordes then worked on a number of activities with the students to help them think about good leadership skills. The students considered various good leaders in the public eye, including Winnie the Pooh who, we discovered, uses a range of leadership strategies to keep peace among the varied personalities in the 100 acre wood. Working in mixed teams from different campuses and key stages, the students had a chance to put their leadership skills to the test in some practical activities.
In the afternoon, it was time for the student leaders to get down to work on thinking of their own whole school goal which would draw on the UN CRC. The students universally decided that the most important right they could work on is the right to a sustainable future. In the coming months (and years) our leadership teams are going to be working on making our campuses healthy and environmentally friendly to achieve this goal.
