As part of our inquiry learning this term, Pohutukawa explored the roles and responsibilities of leaders, and the attributes of a good leader. They then scripted plays from incidents in New Zealand's history where people showed leadership. These plays were crafted to illustrate the roles, responsibilities and attributes of leaders. We also had a lot of fun performing them.
