The active leaders program has been running in our school for the past 8 years. From its inception in 2005 the program has steadily grown over the years to become one of the main leadership programs at Caboolture East.
The active leaders program gives senior students at our school the opportunity to be trained as sport and recreational leaders and coaches. Involvement in the program helps our students develop valuable attributes and skills such as: self confidence; self esteem; leadership and organisational skills.
Students are trained on how to deliver basic physical activities under the supervision of teachers. The young leaders coach our schools junior members in sport and recreation sessions during their first break. A number of set areas are utilized during these sessions; these include the small under covered area, preps, block 6, junior playground and the year 3 oval. Each area has a number of activities set up for our junior students; our leaders then supervise the running of these activities. The objective of active leaders program for the junior school is to provide a positive environment for our younger members to participate in physical activity; allow students to participate in activities at their own level and ability and to encourage positive social interaction between leaders and participants.
