Morebank students encouraged to lead

A GROUP of Moorebank High School students spent last Friday learning new ways of making their voice count, not only at school but within the wider community.

The school's Leadership Day co-ordinator Nicholas Sergi organised the event for the 2014 student leadership team.

"Moorebank High School is proud of the larger number of students who are able to participate in the school's many leadership programs and contribute to our school's successes," he said.

"At our school, all students can be acknowledged as leaders within the school community regardless of whether or not they hold a specific leadership position."

A number of activities were organised for the day, including workshops and sessions with guest speakers who focused on a variety of topics.

The leadership team was also presented with badges.

"The day aimed at engaging and inspiring our students to be active leaders," Mr Sergi said.

"Through hands-on activities, workshops and discussion, students develop leadership skills to equip them not only to lead at Moorebank High School, but to act as leaders in the broader community.

"They learn to work within their local and global communities to create a fairer and more sustainable world."

Host of ABC television series Gardening Australia and environment enthusiast Costa Georgiadis spoke to the school's environment group.

He spoke about starting sustainable projects within the school playground.
