Year 6 Student Leadership Team
At Rockmount Primary School our school motto is “All can achieve”.
The Year 6 Leadership Team 2019/20’s fundamental mission is simple; to pursue and encourage this belief, within themselves and within their peers.
That is easy to say but how can this be done?
Nine Year 6 leaders were selected to achieve the following:
· To test the perceived boundaries of what is achievable
· To serve as an example to others in all of the areas of their lives.
· To relentlessly endeavour to exceed their own personal expectations.
We are currently working on:
MAKE A DIFFERENCE CHALLENGE
Making a difference to society
The Make a Difference Challenge is a child-led social action programme that empowers some of our youngest citizens. It provides them with an opportunity to identify and research a social or environmental issue that they feel passionate about, then make a difference to this through awareness raising, fundraising or taking practical action.
The Make a Difference Challenge programme uses Belle Wallace's TASC (Thinking Actively in a Social Context) Wheel which provides an excellent context for meaningful SMSC learning, pupil voice and character development.
The project enables primary aged children to get a real understanding of the issues communities face, and take the lead in making a difference to them. They learn to empathise with those who are disadvantaged, recognise the role of government, voluntary groups and charitable organisations and consider the part they can play in bringing about positive change.
The impact of the Make a Difference Challenge
The Make a Difference Challenge is a programme that informs and empowers young people how to create change within their community. It has been running for more than a decade and has produced incredible stories of young people’s generosity and resilience.
