Students from all 5 secondary schools came together at Nicholson Catholic College today to discuss the role of student leadership in our Catholic Learning communities.
Students engaged in discussions around student mental health and well-being, student safety and how to reach and represent those whose voices are missing or underrepresented in our schools. The group talked about student elections and the importance of ensuring elections are equitable and reflective of the goals of servant leadership.
