Year 6 Leadership

“The foundation of a collaborative learning community is collaboration – working together for common goals, partnership, shared leadership, co-evolving and co-learning – rather than competition and power given only to a few.” Julie Boyd and Carole Cooper

Leadership is encouraged and developed in all aspects of classroom life. All the things outlined in this section play a part in helping children understand themselves, grow as learners and develop as leaders. At OLOR we want children to have the experience and to understand that every child is a leader and that leadership is a responsibility we all share. All students, be they in Kindergarten or Year 6, have an important and public role to play in contributing to the school community.
