"So You Want To Be A Leader!"


Over the course of the year G.A.T.E.WAYS runs a number of leadership days for students in Year 5 and 6. These programs provide an opportunity for students with leadership potential to come together to develop their critical and creative thinking, problem solving, communication, organisational and leadership skills.

Students participate in seminars, workshops and panel discussions. Panels comprise men and women who are leaders in their particular fields or workplaces. These leaders encourage the students to develop their talents, follow their passions, and make a positive contribution to their world. 

This program consists of three series and each series runs for two days.

Year 6: Series 1 (April)
Year 6: Series 2 (Sept/Oct)
Year 5: (Sept)

The program has been designed for students to complete the first series as a Year 5 in the September school holidays
and then return as a Year 6 student the following year in April for Series 1 and finish with Series 2 in the
September school holidays. Although, the program has been designed as a complete package, each series
should stand alone. This means that students do not have to participate in a previous or future series. The
students are expected to attend both days in a series.
