ASPIRE HIGHER

"Aspire Higher" is an engaging leadership and resilience training specifically designed for Year 5 (Semester 2) or Year 6 (Semester 1) students. It is a full day of training with the full cohort over three high impact sessions. Dynamic activities, whole cohort team builders, servant leadership theme, initiative and problem solving activities are interspersed in each session.

 

 

LEADING FROM THE FRONT (for formal leadership group)

"Leading from the front" is an action and impact oriented training program for your formal student leadership group. It gives them clear steps in order to generate a clear vision, put useful ideas into action (rather than just talk about them) and powerfully communicate the vision.
