Little Leaders Program
Creaney Primary School has long been committed to developing leadership skills in all its students, encouraging and supporting each student to realise their individual potential. We do this through a variety of school programs and activities. ‘Little Leaders’ is a program that is unique and exciting for two very important reasons.
The program was designed in consultation with some of our students from years 4, 5 and 6 under the guidance of staff, School Board members and a staff member from the Holeyoak DRUMBEAT organisation. These students defined the six leadership qualities which make up the program, and also named the program itself. Students monitor and evaluate the impact of the program, and assist in further developing it across the school.
This new program includes everyone. Not only does it include students from Kindergarten to Year 6, it focuses on leadership skills. The Little Leaders Program is about leadership traits that are valued by our students.
Every student will have an opportunity to wear the ‘Little Leaders’ badge, and to look for behaviours that exemplify these leadership traits, in class and in the playground. Students demonstrating these traits will be acknowledged with Class Dojo points school announcements, and their photo will be mounted on our Values Tree in our school office.
The discussions the students have in class with their teachers, and parents support the program by discussing this leadership quality with children, and help them to understand what inspiring behaviour looks like – in both others and themselves. If you have any questions about the program, please discuss with your child’s teacher.
