Young leaders day


On  Monday, 13  March  our  school  captains  and  Ms  von  Richter  went  by  train  to  the  Brisbane  Convention Centre to attend the Young Leaders Day. We heard a number of leaders speaking, including Pippa Sheehan (television news reporter), Nathan ‘Dubsy’ Want  (youth speaker), Commissioner Ian Stewart  (Qld  Police), Josh  Richards  (Mars  One  Astronaut  Candidate),  Hannah  Purss  (camel  whisperer),  Sarah  Cutler  (Frosty  Boy General Manager, Research & development) and Lisa Stojanovski (documentary maker).

The  message of the day was ‘Master the Little’. Instead of thinking that only the ‘big things’ a leader does makes a difference, it’s actually all of the little things that add up to make a big thing. In other words, leadership isn’t just about looking important and standing up on parade, it’s about being a role model with all of the things we do every day.
