It has been almost 5 months since I have made a post. Reality is…. I voice my passion for learning, learners and leaders every week in our school “Summit Times”. Today I vow to share my visions as posts each week. Here are some highlights from our ‘Summit Times’, the voice of an ‘outstanding’ Public Rural High School.
‘Change the world’-Our environmental leaders lead the way.
Year 7 Environment day was lead by the Student Environmental council through a series of outstanding activities to build environmental awareness that will empower our students to make a difference. The activities from Bush Craft, Caring for our injured native animals, indigenous games, recycling relays and an environmental treasure hunt. We invite you to be part of a new global community of doers that show the power of a simple shift in attitude and day to day behaviour. It was Mahatma Gandhi who said “ we must be the change we want to see in the world”. In other words, we are what we do. UHS students will be leading sustainability for the future. Keep a close eye on our initiatives.
“Cultivating the entrepreneurial spirit”
What do we want learning to look like? For our students? For our Teachers?
The redefinition of entrepreneurship.
Entrepreneurship refers to an individuals ability to turn ideas into action and is therefore a key competence for all, helping young people to be more creative and self-confident in whatever they undertake (World Economic Reform 2009).
The world wants innovators, creative and socially aware young people. People want to work, buy from, invest in, contribute to and believe in the most innovative companies. Our school could be the builder of the next “Steve Jobs’, (the extraordinary founder of Apple), as we work toward building 21st Century clever, creative inventive thinkers.
‘High Achievement always takes place in the framework of High Expectation”
Our students learn and create every day. They are fuelled with action, perseverance and hard work.
Last week I had the privilege to present the first Principal’s A wards for 2013. It was an opportunity to personally congratulate some of our hard working conscientious students who any school in Australia would be proud of. Congratulations!
