Yr 9 and 10 Leadership day

15 March 2013 by

This year at Yr 9 and 10 there is a strong focus on developing our student leaders. The focus for this group will be how to make our Theme ‘Living Out Our College Vision” real to all students at Yr 9 and 10. To assist the leaders in this process they took part in the Young Speakers Colloquium as part of Catholic Education week. Yr 9 and 10 leaders from all across Melbourne met in the city to listen to four great speakers including Dylan Alcott – Para Olympian, Brighid Feeney – Law student, Bishop Vincent Long – Auxiliary Bishop of Western Melbourne, and Daniel Well – AFL footballer.

The students gained a great insight into the dedication that is required to reach high standards in any field and how faith played a real role in the success of these speakers. The information , insight and motivation that the students gained from taking part in the program will help them set their goals for the rest of the year. It was great to be part of this program
