Year 6 children at Dobwalls Primary School have been working hard to earn a SMART Leadership badge. At the beginning of the term they were challenged by their headteacher to run clubs for younger children during the lunch hour and they have certainly succeeded.

Every lunchtime for the past four weeks they have successfully run two clubs, ranging from computing to dodge ball! Almost all of the year 6 children have taken it in turns to deliver a club, demonstrating excellent leadership skills and acting as superb role models in upholding the school’s Diamond Rules – showing good manners at all times; following instructions through with great care; and caring for everyone and everything.

‘It has been a real delight to see these young leaders demonstrate so much dedication and energy and make such a positive difference for the younger children in our school. Well done Year 6 you have certainly earned you leadership badges!’ – Tim Gray, Headteacher.
