Leadership Day

On Thursday 9 June, the Sacred Heart College Student Leadership Team (SLT) were fortunate to listen to a wide range of motivational and strong female leaders from a wide range of industries and careers.

In the morning, Keisha Healy from the Victorian Student Representative Council (Vic SRC) worked with the Extended Leadership Team (ELT) to help improve and project student voice at SHC through different approaches and help us identify areas at SHC that need to be changed, improved and introduced. Afterwards, we got to hear from Jennifer Cromarty, the CEO for the Committee for Geelong. 

We were then able to split up and have deeper conversations in our focus groups with guest speakers who included: Georgia Caruana, past alumna and PhD student of Neuropsychiatry, Jessica Rafter the Director of Design and Construction Deakin University, Stephanie Vella past alumna and a mechanical and industrial engineer, Carol Hullin who works in the field of technology, databases, data governance and digital innovation, Andrea De Silva from WorkSafe and Jeni Wills from WILD (Women In Local Democracy) Geelong. Each of these speakers bought their unique stories and experience to give insight about leadership outside of a school environment. 

Lastly, we had Libby Stapleton, the Mayor of the Surf Coast Shire, share her story and journey to becoming Mayor. The day was incredibly insightful and inspiring to see so many women in leadership roles and pursuing careers they love!
