Francis Patton set to hold annual leadership day
Parents, families and members of the community are being invited to a school’s eighth annual leadership day.
Francis Patton Primary School will hold the event on Thursday, May 11, from 9am to 12.30pm, when guests will be able to learn more about what the school does each day through its ‘The Leader in Me’ initiative.
A school spokeswoman said: “The Leader in Me initiative utilises and integrates social-emotional learning, quality and educational models.
“It includes the training of staff and students on establishing a vision for the school, goal setting, data tracking and personal accountability systems. The Leader in Me provides a logical, progressive and balanced process to help our school proactively design a culture that reflects our vision of an ideal school.”
She added: “This initiative differs from other whole-school transformation processes in that it offers a holistic, school-wide experience for staff, students and parents, and creates a common language and culture within the school community.
“The leadership principles and lessons are not taught as a separate curriculum but instead are incorporated into coursework, systems and overall school culture.
People who are interested in attending the event can contact the school’s office by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, April 28. Tickets are $25 per person and includes lunch.
The spokeswoman added: “We look forward to welcoming you to our school to tell you all about what we do each day as we continue to strive to develop leaders, one child at a time.”
