Small school students ready to make an impact

SIXTY-one students from Brunswick Valley Small Schools were among the emerging generation of leaders at The National Young Leaders Day at Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on Monday, 14 March.

The event, which attracted 3,500 upper primary students along with their teachers, principals, and occasionally school managers, is hosted by the Halogen Foundation; a not-for-profit organisation whose mission is to inspire and empower young people to be active leaders in their schools and the wider community.

"Many young people believe they need to do something grand to make an impact. We sought to break this down and highlight the power of practical and everyday actions when it comes to leading well."
