Leadership 8 focuses on learning to take initiative as well as creating a positive school climate. Focus is also placed on making positive connections within the community. Students will be asked to participate in activities that promote well-being. Students may participate in the following: organizing the Terry Fox Run, volunteer scorekeeping for volleyball and basketball, Turkey Trot, Halloween, Movember, Open House preparations and school spirit. Students are expected to bring a positive attitude, a willingness to work with others, and lots of great ideas!
This is a course that demands considerable personal commitment and has a very strong service component.
Leadership 9 students will seek to create a positive atmosphere in school by promoting active citizenship and school spirit. Projects will range from organizing activities to managing the school enterprises (e.g., pep rallies, dances, volunteering, work in the kitchen). Students will learn what is needed to become effective leaders in society and will enhance their leadership skills through a process of goal setting, decision making, planning and reflecting.
Because this is a project-oriented option, students may have to commit to some extra-curricular time, as well as being self-directed and self-disciplined. This is a course that demands considerable personal commitment and has a very strong service component. Most importantly we have a huge community component and our students are expected to be excellent role models in their placements.
