What a wonderful morning we shared together on Monday at the ANZAC Day March. It was an absolute pleasure to see so many staff, students and their families following the representation of local service men and women in our community. Thank you very much to everyone who was able to join us on the day.
YEAR 6 STUDENT LEADERSHIP MINISTRIES
On Friday we celebrate our Year Six students starting the first phase of their leadership ministries. It’s an exciting time not only for our leaders but for the younger students who aspire to lead the school in the years to come. The core mission of our leaders this year is to lead through service in our school and wider community and put the needs of others before those of themselves. In particular, Pope Francis is someone whom the students use as a shining light when it comes to effective leadership. It is through his actions and words of wisdom that our students can be guided to support their fellow students, families and others within the Gayndah community. I want to share with you some of his thoughts on what it means to be an effective leader that I believe really hit the mark for both the youth and senior members of our school community. His words really epitomise what it means to lead through deep thought, considered actions and genuine acts of love and hospitality.
“The world tells us to seek money, success and power, God tells us to seek humility, service and love”.
“ For you see, young children should not bury themselves in what is perceived as one or two shining talents, God has given all youth a range of gifts that must be unearthed in order to not be afraid of what they can’t do, but dream of doing great things”.
Below you will find a video that Mrs Doyle has been working on with our student leaders over the past fortnight. They have done an amazing job and should be commended for the time and effort that has gone into making the presentation.
