Leadership Mentoring for IB College Students

July 10, 2013 at 2:14 PM

Taking the opportunity to fine-tune their own leadership skills is what five Saint Kentigern College International Baccalaureate (IB) students have undertaken during the Leadership Mentoring Programme at East Tamaki Primary School.

While imparting their knowledge and inspiring 11, Year 5 and 6 students in their leadership journey, the learning outcomes from the IB students mentoring were; confidence in public speaking, how to meet and greet new people and develop conversation skills, how to take notes from a presentation, how to create power point slideshows, and confidence in hosting and presenting at assemblies.

The Term 2 Programme was held each week over five sessions and forms part of the Service ethic, one of the five core values at Saint Kentigern which include Love, Respect, Integrity, Excellence and Service.

At Saint Kentigern, engaging in acts of service helps to develop habits like self-discipline; faithfulness to the task and to others involved and opens our eyes to the needs of others.

Taking part in service moves us in a positive direction, from careful thought to action, and it prompts us to live our own highest values, values that become deeply ingrained in our perspective and stay with us throughout our lives.

Service also helps us build a sense of community. It is pivotal to building good character and is underpinned by other values such as caring, humility, unity and generosity.
