This after noon we had another leadership talk with Shawn the police man. He told us some stories about him and how he came from a shy person to a leader.
He told us a story where he was at black Saturday and all the police officers didn’t know what to do and just stood there and he had to take charge.
In total he told us 3 stories about himself and how to become a leader. Some of the things he told us was people will follow your example if you do the right thing. He also told us that if you do the wrong thing people will not follow you ( don’t be hypocrite) He told us that if you are a leader you need to be fair to everybody and not yell at everyone you see.
The things that were similar with shawls talk and Mrs Montgomery’s talk was that they both said you had to listen to everyone in your team.
Today mrs Montgomery talked to all the student s in grade 5 to how to be a good leader.
Mrs Montgomery had 7 inportent points to be a good leader they were
Honesty: you need to be honest to be a leader or people won’t trust you.
Listening: you have to listen to others ideas and not only think about ourself.
Trust : you need to trust your friends or nothing will work out.
Stay strong: you need to stand up for yourself and let people know your opinion.
Sense of humour: you need to have humour and make things fun and laugh with others not at them.
Team work: you need to work well with people in your team or you can’t be a leader if you don’t work well with others.
Focusing on what’s important: you need to know what’s more important for example is playing your Xbox more important than your homework which is due tomorow.
These were all the points that mrs Montgomery gave us.
Soon this after noon a police man is coming to talk about leader ship in the community as well.
Yesterday we went to Montmorency Secondary College for leadership day. We were separated in to groups my group was called beige. They were a lot of different activities and games such as cops and robbers, human knot, coin in the laundry and flying blind. My favourite game was cops and robbers. The point of the game was teamwork and initiative. There was a row of chairs facing opposites ways the cops had to sit on the chairs and there could only be 1 cop running at a time. The cops can’t run through the chairs but the robbers can. Cops have to tap other cop’s shoulders to let them run. We learnt many leadership skills like enthusiasm, strategy, cooperation, persistence, teamwork and initiative. It was a really fun and tiring day.
