Police visit

Today police officer Sean came in and talked to us about 3 things about leadership. They were don’t be shy because you won’t be voted if know one knows who you are, don’t make a bad example because you may not remember it but someone else will and don’t, for example don’t say don’t run on the path and then run on the path. These things are important so people don’t think you a bad leader. This was similar to Mrs Montgomerys talk because they both told to lead by example and it was different because they both said different things

Leadership

Today Mrs Montgomery talked to about leadership. Some of the things she talked about were honesty, listening, teamwork, staying strong, trusting your friends, having a sense of humour and focusing on what is important.

These things are important because people will listen to you and agree with you. I think leadership is important because otherwise people would not listen and argue all the time.

one example I use listen is when we sit on the floor and listen to Miss May.There are many things that need leadership and being a grade 5 is one and that is why I and others show leadership.
