Year 12 Leadership Forum
On 12 October, Year 12 student leaders from Catholic schools all over Sydney gathered at St Mary’s Cathedral College for a leadership forum led by His Grace, Archbishop Anthony Fisher. Lucia Maalouf, Emma Bennett, Klaudia Mihaljevic and Nova Gomes travelled with Miss Mirabello to the event, and took part in numerous activities to help us reflect on how to be good, moral leaders. We were able to work with student leaders from a variety of other schools to brainstorm ways in which we can show leadership in our school community, and how we may overcome any challenges we may face as leaders. We were also informed of the Year of Youth occurring in 2018, and how we can involve ourselves as youth leaders in the church, as well as encourage others to do the same. To conclude the day, we partook in a mass led by Archbishop Anthony Fisher. Overall, the day was a great opportunity and we learnt a lot, benefiting from interacting with students from other schools, and are eager to share this experience with the Bethany community.
