Year 6 Badge Assembly
This morning we celebrated a new group of leaders at our Minimbah Campus with our annual Year 6 assembly and smoking ceremony led by the Bunurong Land Council.
This rite of passage is an important one as these young people reach the peak of their primary school journey, and become the biggest fish in the pond.
Leadership at Woodleigh isn’t about popular vote, and it’s not about ‘being chosen’. We recognise all of these young people as emerging leaders in their community. A big part of their learning involves reflecting on what leadership is, to think about the leaders they look up to, and to role model those qualities. This learning begins in the classroom, but it goes far beyond those walls; we see it in the playground, at home, on the sporting field, and out in the wider community. It carries over into the kind of people these kids are becoming.
