Developing leadership skills for life is a vital part of Holy Family student learning. This falls under the umbrella of student wellbeing and is embedded in our pastoral care practices and procedures.
Our aspiration is that all students will develop the self-leadership skills they need to thrive in a fast-changing and challenging world. This will increase student resilience, perseverance and social emotional learning, also resulting in more confident learners and higher academic results.
The Leader in Me is a whole school transformation program developed by Stephen Covey, that creates a culture of student empowerment based on the premis that anyone can be a leader. The Leader in Me was launched in our school at the beginning of Term 2, 2016.
The 7 Habits of Happy Children are the foundation of this culture of leadership empowerment.
The 7 Habits are:
Habit 1: Be Proactive
Habit 2: Begin with the end in mind.
Habit 3: Put first things first
Habit 4: Think win-win
Habit 5: Seek first to understand, then to be understood
Habit 6: Synergise
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
