To Love, Learn and Respect

 

 Rationale

Leadership is a quality that all Learners at St. Patrick’s Primary School, Pyramid Hill are encouraged and supported to develop. Learners from Foundation to Year 6 take on the role of leaders of their own learning and through the completion of classroom responsibilities.. Through the curriculum all Learners are encouraged to develop the skills necessary to be a leader. This ensures that all Learners perceive themselves as leaders and have the opportunity and confidence to take on leadership roles.

Leadership roles challenge individuals to develop a sense of vision and purpose as they take on responsibilities and use decision making skills in order to carry a project through to a successful conclusion. They develop interpersonal and intrapersonal skills including communication, negotiation, teamwork and reflection. Learners are given opportunities to develop the skills of active, reflective listeners who respond effectively as they work with others to determine and achieve collective goals.

Through their actions, St. Patrick’s Primary School Learners reflect and demonstrate the School’s Values: Love, Learn & Respect.

The Primary Leadership roles are School Captain/s, Catholic Identity, Pastoral Wellbeing and Steward of Resources.
