Student leadership day – St Kilda FC
On Thursday 9 October, our student leaders attended a leadership day at The Saints headquarters in Moorabbin. The morning session, led by Hannah Priest (AFLW Captain), focused on what ‘fills our buckets’ and how we understand and lead others. The remainder of the day focused on community leadership projects: a reflection on 2022 and a plan for 2023, concluding with students making elevator pitches to the group. A fantastic opportunity for our leaders, big thanks to Ms Vasilakis for organising the day!

Students enjoyed an EDI lesson, an Aim High Food Technology or STEM workshop, and the opportunity to choose an iCreate subject for the afternoon. Thanks to Clayton North PS for their enthusiasm and to the WSC teachers for running the day.
