Our school developed Learning Leaders program is provided to identified Prep and Grade 1 students (Grade 1 - Term 3 & Prep - Term 4).
Interested Grade 6 students write an expression of interest to take on the role of Learning Leader. They are then trained by the leadership team,which is made up of the Principal and two Assistant Principals. The program is implemented using their iPad for part of three lunchtimes per week for approximately six weeks.
