Oblate Leadership Summit
On 18 February, five members of the student leadership team, accompanied by Mr Watson and Mr Payne, departed for Brisbane for the annual Oblate Leadership Conference. The conference allows the student leaders from Mazenod College WA, Mazenod College Victoria, Iona College Brisbane and St Eugene’s College (Qld) to gather as an Oblate community and learn from each other about leadership in our final year of school.
This year’s conference was hosted by Iona College and the families of it's student leaders hosted us for the duration. The conference offered valuable insight into the different leadership structures and styles employed by our three brother schools through 15 minute presentations from each, and we used this to help develop our own leadership style. The most beneficial part of the conference was talking to past Captains and Vice Captains of Iona who showed us that, while there will be challenges and obstacles in our path, the way we choose to respond to those obstacles will define who we are as leaders. The conference was a great success and we definitely got a lot out of the experience.
