Leadership at St. Jean de Brebeuf

Asset pic

Hey teachers and students, we are the student leaders from St. Jean de Brebeuf Catholic School.  We would like to introduce you to our new program called Developmental Assets.  You’re probably wondering what Assets are about.  In this program, we are able to identify a set of skills, experience, relationships and behaviours that are our strengths and weaknesses.  This allows us to develop skills to be more successful in many different areas of our lives.  There are 40 developmental assets, 20 external and 20 internal.  The belief is that the more assets you have in your life, the lesser chance you will be involved in negative experiences and the more successful you will be in life.  Makes sense right?  At our school, we learned which areas we are Asset rich and areas that we are low in assets and then developed, with the help of our teachers, a program to build assets in our lives.

Students in grades 1-8 are divided in to 8 different HOME groups named after elements.  Each student is in either Sun, Fire, Water, Air, Metal, Wood and Salt.  The grade 1-3 students are involved in a playground program called PALS (Playground Activity Leaders in Schools) and are led by selected leaders in grades 4-6.  The leaders help the younger students to learn how to play together in a kind way and teach them games to keep them busy at recess.  All students in the primary division participate.

The grade 7 and 8 students lead our grade 4-6 students in a monthly mentorship program called ‘Asset Days’.  The 7 and 8 leaders are mentors and co-mentors and lead activities that look at learning skills and help build teamwork and better sense of community.  We started this program in January and so far everyone really enjoys our Asset Days.  They are teaching our older students how to be better leaders and give us more skills to put in our ‘leadership toolbox.’  It also helps us build more assets to be more successful in our lives.  Student leadership is alive and well at St. Jean de Brebeuf.

Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati Leaders! What is leadership to us.

What is leadership?

This is a question each leader has wondered before we started our journey of becoming the leaders we are today. Leadership is becoming a role model to others through taking initiative and helping the world with selfless actions. We are all leaders in many ways but ECSLIT has helped us all to show it better than we ever could before. To be a leader in my eyes is to do something for the greater good of others without expecting anything in return, a trait that many of us have shown throughout the past school year.

What is fear?

False

Expectations

Appearing

Real

Fear [feer]   noun ;

a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real orimagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid. Synonyms: foreboding, apprehension,consternation, dismay, dread, terror, fright, panic, horror, trepidation, qualm. Antonyms: courage, security, calm, intrepidity.

We are born with only 2 types of fears when we are born, a fear of loud noises and falling. At ECSLIT we learned that fear can be both a good thing and a bad thing. Fear makes us cautious about what we do and keeps us safe. It makes us think before reacting. In contrast, fear can also be a bad thing. It inhibits you from taking action.

Since we are all born with only 2 fears (Loud noises and falling), all of our other fears are really just in our head – unless we’re talking about a life or death situation.

Instead of acting on fear, act on FAITH!

Have faith and believe that the Lord will always be by your side. Therefore, you won’t need / have to worry about your fears actually happening.

“Courage is not the absence of fear; courage rather is acting in spite of fear”

-Michael consul

WE WERE ALL BORN WITH TWO FEARS….

LOUD NOISES

What we learned regarding leadership

- We learned that fear is only “false expectations appearing real.” there is only two fears that we are born with and that is loud noises and falling. We develop different types of fears due to experiences.

-  We learned that what you do on the internet can affect you in the future. We should use the internet wisely. What you post on the internet

-Equity isn’t the same as equality. Equity means the quality of being fair and impartial. Equality is the state of being equal, especially in status, rights, and opportunities.

-We also learned the pros and cons in using plastic water bottles and how they can affect us. Tap water is healthier and cheaper than using plastic water bottles. The plastic that is used to make these bottles can put us at risk and all goes to waste. Also along this journey we learned how to work as a team and learned how to be a leader!

What we experienced regarding leadership

We’ve done so much leadership activities during this year of 2014! We’ve been going to many Esclit meetings and learning even more every visit! Esclit is a place where leaders can learn to make differences and become a better role model. We’ve also gotten an opportunity to go to i-lite with all of the intermediates! At I-lite we’ve got to meet so much people and go to workshops, and we’ve also got a chance to have fun and dance! Our school has been doing a bunch of fundraisers for charity, such as we create change, and we scare hunger!

Zephan From Holy Spirit

For this very last year here for me at Holy Spirit Catholic School, i had an opportunity to make an impact and get involved with so many leadership activities that included going to leadership meetings, a bullying awareness symposium, camp Olympia, provide discussions with the older grades about bullying, and raising awareness. I had also helped out with anything that i could possibly help out with, a lot of these events needed me to stay after school and sometimes before.  From small jobs to big jobs,  the leadership team including myself had always helped out and was involved with events. Even when it was cheering on our schiool teams we always showed leadership.

Jerome from Holy Spirit :)

This year Holy Spirit’s student leaders helped organize the Advent celebration and make it a success.  We had a presentation in the evening for parents and the community to enjoy.  In addition several areas had stations for children and parents such as a petting zoo area,  free hot chocolate and a bake sale.  Afterwards we held candles for two students dressed as Mary and Joseph as they walked down to the Manger.
