School leaders get valuable experience from conference

ON Monday Gillwinga Public school leaders travelled to Brisbane to be part of the 2016 Halogen Young Leaders Conference.

The National Young Leaders Conference is an annual event founded in 1997 to develop strong leadership values amongst young Australians.

The program consists of keynote talks, multimedia presentations and interactive learning that seeks to provide a range of specific outcomes for young people who aspire to lead themselves and others.

As well as guest speakers, students were treated to video presentations from Olympic Canoeist and 2012 London Silver medallist, Jess Fox along with the NSW Premier, Mike Baird.

This was a great experience for our new leaders and will help motivate them to achieve their own goals as well as helping others to achieve as well.
