Rich Task Friday - Englargment

The children had the opportunity to complete a Rich Task within their teams on Friday. Everyone had a chance to complete an individual enlargement of a whale within the classroom with the support of their peers. Then the team had to work together to enlarge the animal in the courtyard. They had to draw a grid and then draw the animal.

National Young Leaders Day

Our Ambassadors, House Leaders and Student Councillors attending the National Young Leaders Day this term. They had some fantastic motivational talks from great New Zealanders from different walks of life sharing their story and leadership journey. For example: Hana Tapiata, Christian Gallen, Ronnie Taulafo, and Dr Lehan Stemmet. ‘Kings’ also performed for the children.

Hana Tapiata
Hana taught me that leaders need to talk to be able to grow. We all have lots of voices in ours heads and we need to think about what we are thinking. Make sure the voice inside your head is a positive one and one worth listening to because the food of leaders is conversations. By Caden

Christian Gallen
Grace - Christian inspired me when he talked about young leaders should not only think about themselves, but they should think about others too. The quote of his I really liked was “In every we there is a me but in every me there is not a we”. He really inspired me to think about other people as well as myself. By Grace

Ronnie Taulafo
Steven - I was inspired by Ronnie because he taught me to keep on trying even if you are not good at something at first. By Steven

Dr Lehan Stemmet
I was inspired by these quotes:
“People listen to what you say and what you don’t say”
“People watch what you do and what you don’t do”
This means that leaders need to be seen to be making good choices and standing up for what is right. If they don’t do this, they will be noticed, and if they do, they will be appreciated. By Mila

I was inspired to remember the golden rule: Treat people the way you want to be treated. I was also taught the Platinum rule: treat people the way they want to be treated. By Aashna
