The Young Leaders Day involved children from Maungatapu School, Selwyn Ridge Primary School and Welcome Bay School in a leadership development course involving speakers such as motivational speaker Tony Christiansen, Mayor Stuart Crosby and Tauranga Boys' College head boy Hautapu Baker.

A total of 60 students, mostly Year 5, took part as a way each school could maximise leadership development by incorporating some of the ideas and messages promoted on the day, into school programmes in 2013.
