The event is part of an ongoing effort to carry out “The Leader In Me” program at Gladstone. “Leader In Me” is a national school transformation program based on student empowerment and is guided by the basic principal that all students can be leaders.

Leadership day began with a student-led program in the auditorium that included dancers, student speakers and a leadership video. Students then led their guests through various breakout sessions in classrooms that featured student teaching and peer learning.

The day concluded with presentations by students in grades 3-6. Presentations were led by group leaders and showcased the various student-led organizations within the school, including: the beautification team, the recycle team, the public relations team and the gardening team.
