MORNING TEA OPTIONAL SESSION Our Favourite Fundraising Ideas

(

Room)

Many student leaders love to fundraise for school and charity projects, but most people agree that raffles and sausage sizzles can become repetitive! This short session will share many of the best ideas that the GRIP Leadership team have come across. These ideas will increase the fun and the funds raised when it comes to this aspect of student leadership. ELECTIVE SESSION #1 (choose one) Transforming My Capacity

(

Room)

Student leaders usually carry a heavy load. This often means that whilst being involved in many things, some leaders fall short of what they hoped to achieve in each area. This practical workshop will teach leaders strategies for increasing their capacity, making the leadership journey more enjoyable and more productive. Transforming Event Participation (

Room)

Wouldn’t it be great if large crowds of students automatically flocked to every event hosted by student leaders? Sometimes this happens, but this practical workshop will examine four reasons why this isn’t usually the case. Following this, the session will explore four strategies proven to increase student participation. ELECTIVE SESSION #2 (choose one) Transforming School Pride (

Room)

How much pride do students currently show in your school? From time to time, all schools can do with a boost in this area. It’s not something that can be transformed overnight, but student leaders are usually the best people to lead the charge. This workshop will equip student leaders with practical strategies for improving this aspect of any school. Transforming the Effectiveness of Our Team (

Room)

Motivated leaders can end up frustrated if it feels like a leadership team is crawling along at a snail’s pace. With lots of ideas and lots of potential, it is important that all student leadership teams are on a pathway to being highly effective. This workshop will explore practical ways for leadership teams to ensure that they start off effectively, and continue being successful as the journey continues.
