At Rehoboth, we provide several opportunities for our Year 6 students to learn leadership skills. Leadership involves managing, influencing and directing others to achieve particular goals. Becoming a leader in a particular area helps students to develop skills in focusing on what is important, using courage to solve problems, sacrificing time to plan and organise activities, managing other people, and relying on Christ to help them through this journey. Student leadership groups are mentored by the Year 6 teachers to help them on this pathway.
In 2019, we have four student leadership teams in Year 6. These teams are: Mission Team, Assembly Team, Waste Warriors Team and House Captains. All teams are responsible for being good role-models for the rest of the Primary School in their behaviour and attitudes.
Please pray for each of our Year 6 leaders as they learn about leadership and God trains them for the future.
Waste Warriors Team
The Waste Warriors Team is responsible for coordinating a team of students to look after our school vegetable gardens and worm farms. They are also responsible for promoting waste wise practises within our school, and providing student representation on the teacher Waste Wise Committee.
The Mission Team is specifically responsible for promoting the cause of missions in our school. They collect the weekly mission offering from each class and provide a report at each assembly. They write letters to our Compassion sponsor child, Lisa. This team has also met with the Mission Teams from the High School and Wilson campus to brainstorm ideas for a whole-school mission initiative.
The Assembly Team is responsible for setting up all of the audiovisual equipment for each Primary School assembly. They also need to make sure that all the equipment runs properly during the assembly and adjust microphone heights for students and teachers. They coordinate other students to help set up the chairs and carpet squares for the assembly. They are in charge of making sure that this equipment is looked after and stored properly.
The House Captains are responsible for organising fun lunchtime activities each week for other students to play. They supervise these activities and encourage other children in the playground. They also have the responsibility to help during athletics and swimming carnivals. This involves encouraging good House morale by cheering for their House and helping to organise competitors for their individual races.
