Thank you Ms Le for organising an outstanding Leadership Day on Tuesday 26 February at Marie Bashir Public School. Grades 3-6 as well as students from the Strathfield network had an opportunity to learn about effective public speaking strategies with international guest speaker Marcelle Bernard. Marcelle is a highly sought after International Speaker, Author and Distinguished Toastmaster DTM. Marcelle presents her popular "Speak Up Speak Easy" Communication Workshops to schools all over Australia and New Zealand. From Marcelle students heard the importance of facial expression, body language and confidence when addressing assemblies, in public speaking or debating to engage the audience.
The students were also involved in: problem solving STEM activities, team building and collaboration, training in SRC members, brainstorming for successful fundraising and activities to become 21st century global citizen.
I also extend my appreciation to the P & C who were successful in receiving a grant from Strathfield Council to fund the associated costs for our Leadership Day.
