Yom Manhigut 2019

Yom Manhigut (Leadership Day) took place on Friday 15 November and was a day full of activities, excitement and fun. The day started with a session on the importance of Public Speaking by our one-and-only Deb Farago. The art of Public Speaking is an important skill to develop and acquire and a skill that will stay with our students for life.

Our Year 4s will all be developing this skill by speaking in public during their Manhigut journey next year. 

The main message from Karen Friede was T.E.A.M. Together Everyone Achieves More. She also spoke about the five main leadership skills we value here at Bialik and they are:

  • Speak Up
  • Step Up
  • Have a Go
  • Think Team
  • Show the Way

Our Year 4 teachers, together with members of the Mazkirut, organized and ran activities that focused on Manhigut skills such as, team building, responsibility, event organisation and knowing your own strengths.

In the afternoon, representatives of our current Manhigut came to present their Portfolios. This was followed by the students selecting their preferred three portfolios that they would like to be responsible for next year.

Our last keynote, which was delivered by Principal Jeremy Stowe-Lindner, focused on different styles of leadership and leadership skills.

However, no event is complete without yummy food. Our Year 4s enjoyed a BBQ lunch and in the afternoon had a chance to schmooze (socialise) with friends, munch on a cookie and drink hot chocolate. Our day ended with a Year 4 Kabbalat Shabbat.

Now the students are waiting in anticipation to find out the portfolio to which they will contribute next year. All will be revealed on Monday 9 December at our final Primary Assembly.

Stay tuned.
