GRIP Student Leadership Conference 2015

Today Mr Taddei, Mrs Miller and I took our student leadership team to the GRIP Conference at the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre. GRIP stands for Generosity, Responsibility, Integrity and People (focussed) which are all strong characteristics of effective leaders. When student's have developed their understanding of these areas they will have a strong GRIP on what it means to be a leader. Sessions helped to develop student learning in areas such as:
  • Making the most of leadership opportunities
  • Looking for opportunities to lead
  • Developing a Leadership Plan
Activities were of high interest, engaging and interactive. Over 1400 students attended this year's conference with opportunities provided for students to meet other leaders. Our student leaders had a wonderful time and learned a lot about how to improve their own leadership capabilities. I look forward to seeing our student leaders flourish over the year.
