National Young Leaders Day

On Thursday 30th of May, a number of our school leaders attended the National Young Leaders Day (NYLD) at Horncastle Arena. Read below to find out more about what went on!

The 2019 National Young Leaders Day has arrived! 

The topic of the day was, 'He aha te kai a te rangatira? He korero, he korero, he korero.' What is the food of a leader? It's conversations. 

While at the conference we heard from many inspirational voices who were speaking from experience to help us become the future leaders of New Zealand. Some of the speakers included, Dr Lehan Stemmet, Ronnie Taulafo from What Now. We also heard from Kings who even performed a free concert for us! Some of the things we learned were, to treat other people not only the way you would like to be treated but how they would like to be treated, to listen to the truthful voices in your life, and you serve to lead. Another important message was that if you are in a situation where things go wrong don’t say you should do better say you will do better!

It was a fun packed day with many other schools from all over the South Island. We now have a range of new knowledge to take back and help us to be better leaders!
