Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,

One of the feel good stories of the year to date is the rise and rise of the Highlanders rugbyfranchise. Last year they were a dysfunctional group of underachievers, (in fact they had been for a number of years). This year they have leapt to the top of the points table with three wins, each breaking some record.

How does a group of perennial under achievers become a group of world beaters in such a short time?

If there was a simple formula to follow then every leader striving for success would implement it.

What we as leaders;’be it parents, teachers, or coaches need to remember that to succeed we need to develop a plan, put in place procedures that help us implement this plan and be prepared to continually monitor where we are, what we have achieved and where we plan to go to next.

Jamie Joseph is a strong leader. Even when not a captain he led by example and that is what a leader needs to be and do, lead from the front.

It’s not enough to talk the talk we need to walk the walk.

Have a great week.

Mike Brosnahan
