WOW! What a day! The SCSS student leadership team went to Ipswich City Council on Tuesday the 29th of July. Oh boy, did we learn a truck load of new leadership skills.
The meeting went for about an hour and it wasn't what we thought it would be. Sometimes the councillors would be serious and get down to business, and other times they would be really happy and joking.
It was really great for us to see a council meeting in action and to see what real leadership looks like in our community. Now that we've seen a council meeting, we've learnt many new leadership skills that we can use at school.
The most important lesson we learnt was ‘no matter the goal, stick with it until you reach it. For the school, community and yourself.’
