We are learning about Rangatiratanga (Leadership and initiative).
This is what we think Rangatiratanga is...
- Helping new kids –showing them what to do and where things are
- Doing something without being asked
- Solving problems for ourselves… thinking
- Leading by example… showing by doing
- It is not being a bossy boots
Rangatiratanga (Leadership and Initiative) - it is all about thinking and making some choices for ourselves.
We need to think for ourselves!!
I show rangatiratanga - (leadership and initiative) in the classroom.
I show rangatiratanga - (leadership and initiative) in the playground.
I show rangatiratanga in the playground by: helping those in need. I take them to the duty teacher or help them get an ice pack.
I show rangatiratanga in the classroom when: I follow my i time card in reading and maths
It was really hard when: to makes sure I am always doing what I need to and my very best.
What a great reflection, it is tricky to make sure you are always trying your best but that is how you can lead by example. Remember initiative is all about making some choices for yourself, have a think and then have a go.
