GRIP Leadership Conference


​GRIP Leadership Conference

Wondall’s student leaders grabbed the opportunity to attend a leadership conference last week. Here are some of their reflections of the day.

Last Thursday, Wondall’s 20 student leaders attended the GRIP Leadership Conference and learnt many of the skills that make good leaders.  The Wondall students joined other students from over 60 schools.  The activities focused on developing a plan to make our school and community a better place. By the end of the day, we were full of enthusiasm to implement many great ideas at school. This will be a team effort and we are sure the school community will appreciate these efforts.
We hope next year’s leaders have as much fun as we did at GRIP.

Last Thursday, the leadership group attended the GRIP Conference.  Student Leaders from over 60 state and private schools from Brisbane and localities such as Ipswich and the Gold Coast attended the program.  At the conference, we  learnt how to be good leaders.  This included developing the confidence and skills to stand up for ourselves, to stand up for others, how to pay it forward and the value of being generous.  We also played games, danced and had a great time.  We made many friends from other schools and had opportunities to win motivational badges.  We will never forget this amazing experience and we will always remember everything we were taught on that day.  Next year’s leaders will have so much fun.

Last week, all the student leaders were invited to attend the GRIP Conference at the Sleeman Centre, Chandler.  At the conference, we met a lot of school leaders from many schools in Queensland.  There were over 1000 students and we all made many new friends.  The conference was an invigorating experience and has unlocked new leadership skills for every student leader at Wondall Heights State School.  We can’t wait to use some of our new skills and implement our ideas into
the school community.
