The 5th annual Jr. Leadership Day for Cycle 3 elementary school students took place on February 10th, 2017 at Westpark Elementary. Over 250 grades 5 & 6 students from 31 of our LBPSB elementary schools came together for a conference focusing on leadership skills. Once again, a highlight of the conference was the numerous groups of LBPSB high school student-presenters. They offered individual sessions touching on a wide variety of topics focusing on high school leadership activities and the opportunities available for our leaders of tomorrow.
Many of our high schools (including Beurling, Mac High, Lindsay Place, Riverdale High, St. Thomas, PCHS, Lakeside, BHS and Westwood Sr.) send several of their very own leadership students to facilitate all of the break-out sessions during the day. “Students teaching students” is an important theme and a key factor in the days' success. It is a great opportunity for our high school leaders to seize the chance to connect with so many of our elementary students. We always look forward to this amazing conference to promote leadership skills for our elementary learners and to connect today’s high school leadership students with our grades 5 & 6 leadership students.
