Year 6 pupils become leaders in Active Surrey's 'Learn2Lead' workshop
A very special workshop was put on for sixteen lucky Year 6 pupils at St George's Junior School, Weybridge on Wednesday 1 February.
The sixteen girls and boys took part in a Surrey Leadership Academy session called 'Learn2Lead'.
'Learn2Lead' provides a pathway for young people to develop as leaders, volunteers and coaches. From training through to deployment, the opportunities available allow those taking part to develop new skills and enhance their personal development.
The training was split up into four sessions during which the children learned how to be able to organise and deliver fun, active clubs at lunchtimes and after school. They were also taught about healthy lifestyles and becoming a role model plus the necessary skills to lead and officiate at local and county Surrey School Games competitions. Finally, they formed a crew to support PE classes, school sport and competitions, whilst acting as a decision making (pupil voice) group.
The children will be working towards attaining an Active Surrey 'Sports Crew' pin badge by earning stickers for demonstrating good examples of teamwork, self belief, honesty, passion, respect and determination.
The girls and boys had lots of fun taking part in this training, as well as learning what it takes to lead others and be an integral part of a team.
These sixteen pupils will now become the 'St George's Junior School Sports Crew'.
