The primary school leadership program at Tinaroo Environmental Education Centre (TEEC) aims to develop the personal and social capability of student leaders. Personal and Social Capability is one of the seven general capabilities in the Australian Curriculum, and is a foundation for learning and for citizenship.
The annual TEEC Leadership Program aims to support schools to develop the leadership skills of their Year 6 student leaders.
2017 camps will be based on 2 geographic clusters:
TEEC North will include: Alexandra Bay, Daintree, Wonga, Miallo, Mossman, Port Douglas, Julatten, My Molloy, Biboohra, Mareeba, Mutchilba, Dimbulah & Walkamin State Schools.
TEEC South will include: Tolga, Kairi, Atherton, Herberton, Irvinebank, Ravenshoe, Mt Garnet, Millaa Millaa, Malanda, Butchers Ck & Yungaburra State Schools.
Students leaders attend an annual camp at TEEC in Term 1 where they begin to plan leadership activities for their school in consultation with their Principal or Teacher. During the year student leaders work with key teacehrs at their schools to further develop and apply these skills.
Overview of TEEC's contribution to the program:
Leadership Camp: The students attend a camp in their Cluster groups. This camp is of 3 days duration and focuses on the 10 Leadership Skills:
- Listen • Make decisions
- Encourage • Evaluate
- Support • Model behaviours
- Show initiative • Organise
- Delegate • Communicate clearly
Dates for 2017 camps are as follows:
TEEC School Visits: A TEEC teacher provides support and encouragement to the leaders by making visits to each school involved in the program. At these visits the students share projects they have been working on and apply their skills by hosting a tour of their school grounds.
Reflection and discussing future directions are important aspects of this visit.
Rewards Days: At the end of each year, TEEC organises a REWARDS DAY where students present a speech based on their leadership experiences. Each school presents their Powerpoint and speech relating the experiences and challenges encountered during the year.We share a lunch and the students are invited to participate in a fun activity.
The REWARDS DAY is a great opportunity to acknowledge and congratulate the students on their accomplishments during the year.
