Lower Sixth Leadership Evening
The Lower Sixth leadership evening was focussed on the allowing students to have a fun and enjoyable evening whilst creating an environment where the they were tested and stretched by various tasks. This enabled them to prepare for the roles and responsibilities of being leaders of the school in their Upper Sixth year.
There were many challenges to overcome both as individuals and while contributing to a group. Each team had to organise itself to complete a series of tasks under time pressure. There was a ‘whodunnit’ (where clues are given in order to solve a mystery which allowed us to apply critical thinking), a last minute seating plan for the annual school Christmas dinner (which highlighted people’s ability to effectively use their time), a shirt making task for a charity (which tested creativity and expression), a synchronised dressage (which was highly entertaining, creative and developed confidence), and finally there were maths problems to solve (which showed how well the Lower Sixth could perform with hard tasks in limited time).
Great fun was had by all and serious lessons about the importance of organisation, planning and delivering on time were learned.
