Yr 6 Leadership day

Last Friday, the Grade 6 student leaders went to Psyche Pumps. We learnt how to become a better leader at Mildura West. We did a lot of team building and leadership activities to build up our confidence. Thank you so much Mr Cav. and Sam for taking us. We had a great time. - Ruby, Ashlee and Sophie

We learnt that we need to have trust in each other as a team and help to encourage one another. We also learnt to work as a team. We worked with people we don’t usually work with and it’s important being able to work with everyone. - Ryleigh, Solopani and Sara

We think the highlights of the day was going to Psyche Pumps and working together in teams and becoming better leaders. Another highlight was the ‘Follow the Leader’ activity, where you had to trust your partner to guide you around. Communication was so important. - Noah, Logan, Beau, Prince and Rohallah

Our highlights of the day were the Human Calculator. We had to step on numbers from 1-30, in order and in the fastest time. Another highlight was the Follow the Leader activity, where we had to trust each other. Someone was wearing pitch-black painted goggles and the one person had to guide the other. - Damian and Austin

The best part of the day at Psyche Pumps was being able to communicate and have everyone’s ideas included. Also, not having one person being a boss. It was great being able to have the opportunity to learn how to work well with other people and being a responsible leader and representative of our school. - Jordan, Skyla and Maddison G.

One of the best things we did was the black goggles because you needed to trust your teammate and your partner needs to give you instructions to go through the course. - Kayd, Izaak and Nate

The best part of the day was that everyone participated in the activities and worked well together. We learnt that teamwork is everything. We also learnt how to trust each other and how to communicate when needed. - Janeti, Gabe, Jacob and Jonah
