Over the past week we have inducted our senior leaders – the St Mary’s College Prefect Team – as leaders in the College for 2021. The Prefect Investiture itself was a wonderful occasion, providing the opportunity for the families of each of our Prefects to witness them being formally inducted into this significant role in the life of the College.
Leadership is about serving others. On multiple occasions already this year our senior leaders have shown that service is natural to them – a built in component of being a leader. Last week the annual ACC (Associated Catholic Colleges) leadership launch was held for the captains of all member schools. At this event, Darcy Lynch and Campbell Oldham (Co-College Captains for 2021) represented the College with pride and passion. At the event, they spoke about St Mary’s College, with inspiring words of who we are and what we dream of becoming.
The House Swimming Carnival last week and the House Athletics Carnival taking pace next week are opportunities for our leaders to honour tradition and build culture through their words and actions.
