For four days, October 9-12 John Paul’s School Grades 10 and 11 students went to Gunung Bundar for their leadership training. With the theme ‘Stand Up and Lead’, this four-day training aimed to develop students’ skills and potentials to become responsible, confident, active and caring leaders of tomorrow.
The whole leadership training module was packed with activities that were challenging, empowering, energizing and fun while at the same time exhausting. Captain Andrian and his team led the training with seven JPS senior high teachers. During the training the students were taught Group Dynamics and Teamwork, Group Formation, Survival Skills, Navigation Skills as well as Nationalism. Exciting and thrilling activities such as Mountaineering, Mountain Trekking, Night Trekking and Bonfire were also experienced by the students. One very memorable experience that the students had was when they were taught how to survive in case they were attacked by snakes.
