Developing future community leaders
YEAR six students from Thangool State Primary School will be doing more than just milking cows on their leadership camp to Myella Farm Stay in Baralaba.
Departing from the school tomorrow morning and returning Friday at 3pm, Thangool State Primary School principal Fiona Byrne said students will partake in a number of team building and trust activities run by the school’s chaplain.
“We have gone to Myella for the last few years since Kroombit Tops closed down and we try to keep our year 6 leadership camp local to support our local area and help parents with reduced travel costs,” Ms Byrne said.
“We aim to develop teamwork and build relationships with their fellow leaders.
“We would like the year 6 students to be great role models to our school by following our school rules, promoting kindness throughout our school, working together as a team actively participating in school and community events.”
The students will sleep under in the stars in swags and will also tend to the farm animals and do whip cracking.
Ms Byrne said house captains, vice captains and school captains presented speeches to the whole school at the end of 2019 and were voted into their positions by their peers.
The badging ceremony for the 2020 school leaders occurred last week with long-time worker and well-respected Thangool resident Bob Moschioni presenting the students with their badges.
