Adrian Parisi from the BluePrint initiative has been working with our students to develop leadership and social and emotional skills. Adrian worked with our Year 5 and 6 students in Term 1 to help them develop their leadership skills. In

Term 2, Adrian is working with our Prep, Year 1 and Year 2 students and with our Year 3 and 4 students in Term 3 to learn about communication, team work, empathy, gratitude and problem solving.

Adrian will return in Term 4 to continue to work with our Year 5s and 6s to provide strategies that support the transition from Year 6 to year 7 and to help develop the leadership skills of our Year 5 students as they prepare for Year 6 in


Our Prep students enjoyed their time with Adrian and here are some things that they had to say:


  • Jake, Prep H – When we played the games we learnt how to show empathy to people in our grade.

  • Tessa, Prep H – It was exciting when Adrian came because we played games and learnt about listening.

  • Azura, Prep A – Adrian was fun because we played games, like boats and passing the ball without it dropping which was really hard.

  • Finn, Prep E – Adrian played a game with us about teamwork. We had to fit in the ship together and make room for each other.
