Deputy Head of School’s Comment

John Colet School, Belrose, Sydney

At this time of year, we focus on Leadership as our 5th class step up to take their place as the School Leaders for 2021. Next Tuesday they will be asked to write a short speech on an unseen topic which centres on leadership qualities. They will present their speeches to 4th,5th and 6th class as well as the grade teachers and Mr Wilcock and myself. Every year it is noticeable that the children recognise the qualities necessary for leadership and vote accordingly. Every year our 6th class as a whole set the tone for the rest of the school. This year we have seen a great demonstration of the School Values by 6th class which has been a wonderful example to the children who will follow. In a conversation with 5th class recently, they spoke of how inclusive 6th class are of each other and how they are always happy.
