Developing Leadership Skills
Students at Larmenier are engaged in a wide range of leadership opportunities.
The unique offering of our school farm provides children with the experience of caring for our animals, crops and school environment, thus developing children’s skills as environmental stewards of the future.
As students progress through Primary School they are given opportunities to be reading buddies for younger children, lead school assemblies and plan and participate in fundraising efforts for worthy causes. Older children also lead sports activities and lunch time clubs for a wide variety of interest groups.
Larmenier students are long standing supporters of St Vincent de Paul and offer a Mini-Vinnies group which students can join. This group works tirelessly to raise money to support members of the Launceston community who are in need.
Larmenier also offers a ‘Community Group’ who visit the Mt Esk nursing home and provide support and companionship for the elderly. Children are often at Mt Esk, which is located next door to the school, and can be found chatting to residents, reading with them or taking our school pets and animals to the nursing home for a visit. These interactions are highly valued by both our school children and the elderly.
