MORNING TEA OPTIONAL SESSION Making Meetings Effective

(

Room)

Many student leaders are involved in running meetings on a regular basis. The effectiveness of these meetings can be one of the main things that influences whether a team is successful or not. This short session will give practical strategies and ideas to make meetings both enjoyable and productive. ELECTIVE SESSION #1 (choose one) Leading Exciting Events

(

Room)

Student leaders often organise a wide variety of events, some which may even have a serious objective. It’s possible to add an element of excitement to any event, which will increase both participation and enjoyment. This workshop unpacks four practical strategies for making events more exciting, with numerous examples from other schools. Leading a Team of My Peers (

Room)

It is often challenging for a student to lead a team of their peers. Sometimes friendships get in the way, people don’t take things seriously, or it just feels awkward. This workshop equips students with four strategies and lots of pracical tips designed to make this easier. ELECTIVE SESSION #2 (choose one) Leading with Engaging Speeches (

Room)

Leadership is more than giving speeches, but this is still a valuable skill for leaders to develop. When preparing speeches, many students make the mistake of only focusing on the information they wish to communicate. This workshop equips leaders with eight practical strategies for making a speech engaging, regardless of whether the speech is to a few students or an entire school. Leading in Positive Partnerships with Teachers (

Room)

For a student leadership team to be effective, it is essential to develop a positive partnership with teachers. With the right strategies in place, it won’t feel like ideas are always rejected or that teachers are trying to restrict things. This workshop looks at the strategies to put in place so that teachers and students can be on the same team in making their school a great place.
