The Rise Up program provides opportunities for students who aspire as leaders. The program at Hedland Senior High School recently facilitated its second Leadership Alliance Day which when student leaders from the Hedland primary schools joined high school student leaders for a day of activities to help improve their knowledge and application of leadership and wellbeing skills.
Students enjoyed building connections, discussing the meaning of leadership and being a leader, and participating in growth mind set and self-care activities.
Primary schools students shared their feedback:
“I learnt about how to be a good leader and the real definition of leadership. I enjoyed the last session about how to relax in the stress of life. Some of it I already knew but most of it was helpful. The food was good, and they had plenty of spare water. It was amazing (5 stars).”
“We had a delightful time at the high school. We learned what a growth mindset, a fixed mindset, and a lollipop moment were, and we did lots of teamwork. It was very fun, and I loved the mindfulness, and the food was nice. Thank you so much for inviting us.”
