Leader in Me is an evidence-based social-emotional learning process
Gladesville Primary School is proud to be a Leader in Me School. Leader in Me is a whole-school improvement process based on the idea that everyone can be a leader. This evidence-based approach empowers students with the leadership and life-skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. We focus on developing the whole-child by:
teaching LEADERSHIP to every student,
creating a CULTURE of student empowerment,
and aligning systems to drive results in ACADEMICS.
Content from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a key component of the overall Leader in Me process. The 7 Habits is a synthesis of universal, timeless principles of personal and interpersonal effectiveness, such as responsibility, vision, integrity, teamwork, collaboration and renewal, which are secular in nature and common to all people and cultures.
Leader in Me aligns to the Victorian Curriculum where the process teaches students the skills needed for academic success in any setting. These skills include critical thinking, goal setting, listening and speaking, self-directed learning, presentation-making and the ability to work in groups. The 7 Habits are embedded across all subject areas, activities, events and celebrations.
