National Young Leaders Day

Last week 7 senior students attended the National Young Leaders Day. This event is for students who show potential as leaders. There are a number of great speakers and they follow a theme.

This year the theme was 
E kore au e ngaro, he kākano i ruia mai i Rangiātea. Tomokia e te toki.
I will never be lost, for I am a seed born of greatness. Pick up your toki.

It was a great theme, with each speaker working through the theme. 
The students had their favourites and different things stood out to them. It was a pretty cool event and you can read more about it by heading to the blogs of Shukoor, Cayde, Base, Zac, Prudence, Bella and Hannah. 
Here are some photos of the day:

 The stage and all the students. It was pretty exciting and noisy!

We each got a notebook and most of us used it. 

Nomad! They were awesome - such incredible voices. Mrs Spragg was quite impressed. 

Base really wanted to go down and join the crowd.

These guys didn't.

The girls thought the day was pretty cool.


  1. It is great to see that you are taking leadership seriously. It is great to see that you are learning about leadership as there are many skills involved. I have learnt that it is important to stay on top of things which means working very hard until something is finished. I know you are just the team to be able to do this.
