Learn About Leadership

Sir Peter Blake was an award-winning New Zealand yachtsman who was killed by pirates in 2001. Scholars learn about his leadership qualities in a fun lesson that combines games, writing, and discussion. Pupils also reflect on ideas of leadership by completing graphic organizers. Finally, they collaborate on an engaging team-building activity using recycled materials to construct a raft.
