Reaching their potential
Thursday, 22nd April, 2010
Students and coaches spent yesterday improving on their strengths and leadership skills with Max Potential.
Max Potential is a program aimed at giving the city's young people a chance at learning about leadership. The program, which ran last year, started again in March and has been a big hit with the students. This program, funded by Clubs NSW, brings together students from Willyama High School, BH High School and Menindee Central School. The four students from Menindee Central School said this experience was setting them up for the future. Vika Pagano, Marley Darrigo, Rodney Nolan and Pamela Philp all said the program was helping them work of their strengths. "You come here to challenge yourself," said Pamela. Wayne Deeth, the project manager, said Max Potential was good for the benefits of using leadership, meeting new people and having fun. At the program the students will be required to present a community project. The Menindee Central School students all agree taking part in the community service project will be the best part of the whole program. "It helps with leadership and develops friendships," said Pamela. "It (also) looks good on the resume," said Rodney.
