Grade 6 Leadership for Innovation and Creativity takes students on a journey of self-discovery and acceptance as they develop the leadership skills necessary to effectively combine their gifts with their passions. This course is appropriate for those who are intellectually curious and may or may not be identified as ‘gifted’. Students will be involved in leadership development sessions and social justice workshops as well as a range of optional outdoor recreational activities. The United Nation Sustainability Goals are a theme throughout this course.
Please note: Teachers are welcome to come to this course with a group of students from their school. Perhaps consider bringing a contingent of Grade 6 students who would benefit from developing leadership competencies that they can take back to their schools.
Sessions focus on:
- Developing a sense of belonging, inclusion, purpose and self-mastery
- Developing, an understanding of each individual’s unique needs, interests, strengths, challenges
- Identifying areas of growth and strategies to foster that growth e.g. social interactions, working as part of a team, communication skills, conflict resolution, problem-solving, etc.
