This week student leadership has been in the spotlight at Kerang Christian College. At the Middle School Chapel and Assembly this week, our Secondary School Leaders were officially recognised and awarded their leadership badges for 2015. Meanwhile, our Year 6 students attended the Young Leaders Day in Melbourne as part of their leadership training.
Lenny Brown, Year 11 Home Group Captain shared a few remarks about leadership for our Middle School students. She highlighted, “You don’t have to have a badge or a nice big role in the school to be a leader. Leading isn’t just about a position. It’s about helping each other out and showing each other the way.” Lenny further highlighted the importance of sharing ideas and being a leader within yourself.
This year the College has expanded the Student Representative Council (SRC) to include Home Group Captains for Years 7 – 11. The SRC provides a student voice for students at the College where members can share feedback and recommendations on matters that affect students at our school.
Students in the Secondary School have also elected two Middle School Captains for 2015. Elizabeth Kopec and Luke Slatter will represent our Middle School students in this role. They will also serve on the Gannawarra Shire Youth Council with returning representatives Nicholas Steains and Lenny Brown.
Lenny Brown (Year 11) will also serve as the elected Mayor of the Gannawarra Shire Youth Council in 2015. Lenny shared, “Youth Council is a great way to learn more about our community and Council, as well as have a say about the needs of young people in the Shire.” Lenny further highlighted, “If you are interested in becoming involved in community decisions and want to work with a great team of young leaders, then Youth Council is for you.”
The Year 6 students from Kerang Christian College were among the emerging generation of leaders at The National Young Leaders Day at the Melbourne Convention Centre on Friday, 13th March. The Year 6 students from the College attend the Young Leaders Day each year. The event, which attracted over 4,000 students from schools across the state is hosted by the Halogen Foundation whose mission is to inspire and influence young people to lead themselves and others well.
At the end of 2015, the College will acknowledge two Primary School students as Primary School Captains at the College Presentation Evening. This award is presented annually to two Primary School students who have embraced the opportunity to lead while studying in Year 6 at Kerang Christian College. It is anticipated that this award will encourage all Year 6 students to aspire towards being outstanding leaders in Primary School throughout the school year.
At Kerang Christian College we provide many opportunities for students to serve in leadership positions. Students can lead in sport, academics, chapel and community service. All students can be role models for others in our school community. It was once said, “Leadership is action, not position.” All students are encouraged to act as leaders in our school community.
