On Thursday, our Year 13 leaders went to St Peter Chanel, Motueka to a leadership development day with Chris Duthie Jung and Louise Llyod from the Wellington Archdiocese. The theme of this day was focused on Servant Leadership. Servant Leadership is the model given to us by Jesus Christ, where we seek to serve for the benefit of others, rather than for our own personal gain. We explored the concept of leading with courage during this challenging time of Covid – 19 where doing things differently doesn’t mean doing them wrong. Each leader reflected on finding their personal why around using principles to guide their actions in their leadership roles at Garin College for 2022. Our Year 13 leaders were also put through the paces of challenging situations where a decision must be made and based on the principle of the Common Good.

Thank you to both Chris and Louise for coming to lead this day and set up our leadership team with new learning and insight.
