GRIP Leadership Conference
Our Middle School Highton Prefect group and the Senior School Captains ventured to the Melbourne Exhibition Centre on Tuesday to be involved in the ‘GRIP Leadership Conference’, along with over 1000 other student leaders from across the state.
Our students were able to network, glean ideas from others and be prepared in practical ways for their leadership roles within the College. Topics presented in the main forum revolved around the notion of contributing to positive change as a team. In break-out elective sessions, students investigated ways to transform their personal capacity, school event participation, effectiveness of their team and building school pride.
There was a real buzz among the students following the conference, with many exciting ideas and a real anticipation for the year ahead developing as they serve and lead their peers. We see this conference as one way in which to invest into our young student leaders, and we look forward to mentoring and meeting regularly with this group throughout the year.
