For the past 23 years the Rotary Club of Durban North has offered a Leadership course, specifically aimed at Head prefects and their deputies. The course is specially designed to give these leaders the tools that will be necessary to assist them throughout their year leading their respective schools. It has been attended by all categories of schools and found to be beneficial to all who have attended.
Some of the topics covered are Life-skills, Interpersonal relationships, conflict resolution, team building, personality styles and time management. The presenters are all highly qualified people in their specific fields.
The course take place during the last three days of the Summer school holidays in January and is held over 3 days. Delegates therefore have the opportunity to share their new found knowledge with the other prefects or leaders within the school and plan their strategies for the year ahead prior to school commencing.
The course has been held at the Emoyeni Country Lodge, Cato Ridge for the last couple of years.
The 2017 Head Prefects course was held on 4-6 January at Emoyeni.
The club brings together an impressive line-up of facilitators and speakers to inspire and educate the students. 2017 speakers included: Educational Psychologist Steve Mack; Glenda Slade from iConverse talking on communication skills; Colin Vermaak from Human Impact on personality types; Alma Maxwell from Outsourced Communications on Social Media; Attorney Roger Knowles on Mediation vs Litigation and Clive Howe from Ec@ps on Strategic Planning.
The students also enjoyed some very interactive and fun team building activities with Brett Ellis from Team Attitude and Adele Benvie from The Success Company. The three day course ended with a cacophony of sound created with the Talking Drums team of Mike and Tracey Chananie.
The cost is approx. R2200.00 for the entire course, including accommodation and meals and other Rotary Clubs are invited to consider sponsoring the leaders of their local school and give them the opportunity to attend.
