We would like to offer our students (both those currently in leadership roles and those who aspire to them) the opportunity to attend the National Young Leaders Day at Te Rauparaha Arena in Porirua on Wednesday 17th May. This is a whole day event.
An extract from the website http://www.nyldnz.org/ (clips and further information can be found here) says…
Leaders are often made, not simply born. We are dedicated to sparking the leadership potential that’s inside every young person through practical, inspirational events and leadership resources.
National Young Leaders Days are the largest and longest running leadership event for primary, intermediate and secondary school students. These large scale annual events aim to develop student leadership. Since 2001, more than 110,000 students have been empowered to fulfill their dreams and become great leaders at a National Young Leaders Day in New Zealand. NYLD events are also held in Australia and Singapore.
The objectives of NYLD are
- Student empowerment
- Promoting positivity
We have 45 places booked so, after we have ensured that all interested students who currently hold leadership roles have a place, we will be extending this offer on a “first come, first served” basis to those who do not.
Students will take the bus from school at 8.45 am and, as the event finishes at 2.30pm, we may well be back a little after the close of school.
Tickets for this event are $45 (with a group discount) and the cost of the bus is $5 per student, making the total cost $50 per student.
If your child is interested in attending the National Young Leaders Day on Wednesday 17th May, please make payment direct to the office, or send $50 in an envelope, marked with your child’s name and ‘National Young Leaders Day’ to the office as soon as possible. Please remember that spaces are limited.
