Caritas Just Leadership Day motivates Year 8 students to make some changes


Ten Year 8 students were given the opportunity to attend the Caritas Just Leadership day held in Echuca on Tuesday 20 August. The aim of the day was to explore what it means to be a ‘just’ leader.

The students participated in workshops that focused on the following themes: what constitutes good leadership, what the Church, through Catholic Social Teaching, requires of us in the leadership domain, identify local, national and global issues of justice. The team have been invigorated to act on social justice issues within the Coolock community.
