The National Young Leaders Day
Selected School Leaders from Poynter Primary School welcomed the opportunity to participate in this special event. It was described as follows:
The National Young Leaders’ Day is an annual event founded in 1997 to develop strong leadership values amongst young Australians. The conference gives those students selected by their schools for leadership roles the capacity to develop their skills to assist others, set goals, work in teams and speak in public and solve problems.
On the day our students met - Andy Griffiths, a Best Selling Children’s Author, Lorin Nicholson, the first blind person to ride over 4,000km across Australia, Nat Medhurst, Australian Diamonds Gold Medalist and Josh Richards, Mars One Astronaut Candidate.
