Year 8 Formation Day08/03/2019
On Tuesday 5 March all Year 8 Students participated in a Formation Day. The objective of the day was to promote and foster leadership whilst providing education on the importance of wellbeing. The day was facilitated by Cricket Victoria, SALT (Sports and Life Training) and our CMC Wellbeing Team.
One of the key messages from the day was how to use social media in a positive way. The E-commissioner website has some fantastic resources for parents to access. This site is highly recommended by the College: https://www.esafety.gov.au/education-resources/iparent
Our female students participated in Cricket Victoria workshops titled: Bouncing Back Better (resilience), Igniting Your Leadership Spirit (leadership), Getting the Balance Right (growth mindset/organisation) and Social Sixes (active team building).
Our male students attended workshops facilitated by SALT and our Wellbeing Team titled: Time to Man Up, Wellbeing for Men, Social Media in our Society and Social Sixes. The information presented will continue to be developed throughout the year in our Veritas Mentoring Program.
We were delighted that past student Tayla Vlaeminck returned the College as part of the Cricket Victoria Team. Tayla plays for the Melbourne Renegades and was a member of Australia’s victorious T20 World Cup squad last year.
