Last weekend our Lead Prefect Team visited Craigower Lodge in Newtonmore. Although an outdoor centre run by Active Outdoor Pursuits, the Prefect Team were there to focus on Team-Building, Values and Leadership. They were accompanied by Ms Mairi Sutherland, Mr Brendan McMahon and Miss Rona Macpherson. The rest of the Senior Management Team visited on Saturday to lead some activities and later Miss Catherine Bain joined the group to deliver a workshop on public speaking.
This is a valuable weekend put together by Ms Sutherland, based on the type of leadership academies delivered by Columba1400 which the school also works with. The challenge for the Lead Prefect Team is to reflect, learn and develop their team and leadership capacities through the many different roles and responsibilities that they have during the session ahead.
