TEEC School Visits: (The last 2 weeks of May 2020) A TEEC teacher provides support and encouragement to the leaders by making visits to each school involved in the program. During the 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.
