Leadership in action

Untuk mendukung Kurikulum 2013 kelas V SDKr. MDC merencanakan untuk mengikuti kegiatan leadership ke Ken Park, Kenjeran, Surabaya. Melalui kegiatan tersebut siswa diharapkan dapat belajar memimpin dirinya sendiri dan memimpin kelompoknya. Selain itu, siswa dapat belajar melalui pengalaman belajar di luar kelas dengan aktivitas yang menyenangkan.

Kegiatan leadership dilaksanakan dalam bentuk outbond pada hari Rabu, 9 Mei 2018. Pukul 07.30 rombongan kelas V dan guru pendamping berangkat dari sekolah menuju Ken Park. Angkutan umum “bemo” dipilih sebagai alat transportasi dalam kegiatan ini. Ini merupakan kedua kalinya siswa kelas V memiliki pengalaman naik bemo untuk kegiatan di luar sekolah. Di luar kebiasaan mereka menaiki kendaraan pribadi, mereka antusias berangkat dan kembali ke sekolah dengan angkutan umum.

Melalui kegiatan leadership, siswa belajar melalui permainan-permainan yang menantang dan dapat memumpuk keberanian mental, kemandirian, kinestetik, sosialisasi, motorik kasar dan halus. Permainan yang diikuti siswa antara lain ice breaker, jaring laba-laba, jembatan burma, tali titian, susur tali, dan flying fox. Di awal acara, siswa diminta untuk membuat yel-yel yang akan membuat mereka semangat dalam mengikuti kegiatan. Terlihat beberapa kelompok mempresentasikan yel-yelnya dengan kreatif dan penuh percaya diri. Dari sekian permainan, tali titianlah yang dirasakan paling menuntut keberanian. Sebagian siswa dapat melewati tali titian dengan mudah, sebagian lagi memerlukan motivasi dari teman maupun guru pendamping. Pada akhirnya, semua siswa dapat mengikuti semua permainan dengan lancar.   

Secara keseluruhan, kegiatan leadership terlaksana dengan baik dan siswa kelas V mengikutinya dengan antusias. Pukul 14.30 siswa kelas V dan guru pendamping tiba di sekolah. Meskipun lelah, namun pembelajaran hari itu memberikan pengalaman baru bagi siswa kelas V yang tidak akan terlupakan. Pengalaman yang mengajarkan pada diri mereka, bahwa mereka mampu menjadi pemimpin.
