Head Girl Leadership Conference

Ms Moon took Braeside’s Head Girl to a Leadership Conference this week at Forest School. The purpose of the conference was to explore different types of leadership and for pupils to explore how they can develop their leadership skills in preparation for post 16 learning and beyond. The speakers were very inspiring, they included Olly Hicks (a World Record holder for lone sailing) and  Dr Ellie Herrington (an academic and organiser for the US presidential campaign). Their stories of leadership, resilience and endeavour were interesting and food for thought. The speakers were followed by a pupil panel and workshop. It was a great opportunity for young people from different schools to collaborate and discuss leadership opportunities.
