Greenlands School: Students interact with key speakers

YEAR 6 students are considered leaders at Greenlands State School and, throughout the year, they participate in a range of activities to help develop their leadership capabilities.

Recently, the Year 6 students travelled to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre to take part in The National Young Leaders' Day.

This day is an annual event founded in 1997 to develop strong leadership values among young Australians.

The students interacted with 3000 other young leaders from around Queensland and listened to keynote talks from leaders in industry, including motivational speaker John Coutis, Australian Cricketer Holly Ferling and The

Voice winner Harrison Craig.

Keeping healthy

STUDENTS have been participating in a wide range of sports activities throughout the term.

Three softball teams and a cricket team are competing in the Granite Belt Schools Competition.

Tennis Hot Shots has been fun with students building on skills learnt in last year's lessons.

The AFL Auskick program has been running on Thursdays at lunchtime with the Bomb the Teacher session a student favourite.

On Thursday mornings, are training for cross country by running around the grounds with principal Kyle Low.

"The sports and physical activity program at Greenlands not only helps keep children fit, it promotes a range of benefits including building self-esteem and confidence while fostering social and communication skills,” Mr Lowe said.
