SOUTH Gippsland’s leaders of tomorrow converged on Korumburra last week to hone their skills.

Tuesday saw students from 18 different primary schools in the region attend a conference while Wednesday 100 students from eight different secondary schools joined in the fun.

These conferences are run by Grip Leadership and take students through fun ways to help lead their schools.

The project facilitated by the Local Learning and Employment Network (LLEN) in a partnership with Bass Coast School Focused Youth and the Bass Coast and South Gippsland Shire Councils.

Students enjoyed sessions on public and motivational speaking, sports leadership, minimising conflict and using technology to lead.
