Young Women In LeadershipYMIL

Earlier this year six senior students were given the opportunity to partake in the Massey Young Women in Leadership programme. The students involved were Sophia Babbage, Tori Harvey Ingham, Emma Kimura, Ashleigh Richards, Lucy Scrivener and Ashley Taylor.

The focus of the programme was to develop student’s teamwork, leadership, negotiation skills and presentation/public speaking. The group were also given the opportunity to meet with other young women who have created charities and businesses of their own.

As part of the programme, the group were tasked with creating a project for their local community. The group brainstormed many ideas and eventually chose to create small care packages for a women's based charity. Using their new found wisdom and enthusiasm, the group set about researching local charities, eventually deciding on the Women's Refuge. After meeting with the organisation, the group selected appropriate items for the care packages and approached local businesses for sponsorship. The students also collected many donations from the families of the student body and staff. Some of these donations were hand made specifically for this project, including hand sewn bags which were made with the help from staff. In all, over 200 care packages were produced, each with a personalised tag expressing well wishes. The care packages will be given to women seeking refuge in the safe houses provided by the Women's Refuge.

This project would not have been possible without the help and support of local businesses, the families of our student body and teachers - thank you to everybody for their involvement and help in the completion of this project.

Brave Thinkers Programme

During the holidays, two Year 12 Business Studies students, Nathanael Mitchell and Bach Pham, were sponsored to attend the residential Brave Thinkers programme. The intensive 5-day experience encourages students to be bold in their thinking, develop their interpersonal skills and conceptual understanding of developing business ideas, meet other business people, and combine academic learning with business decision making. Nathanael was a key member of the winning team at the event. His team’s idea was to design an app to help young addicts onto the path to recovery. Both young men thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend the programme to other students.
