He Waka Eke Noa, We are all in this together. Over the last weekend the five Edmund Rice Schools of New Zealand (Liston College, St Peters College, Auckland, St Thomas of Canterbury, Christchurch, St Kevins College, Omarau and Kavanaugh College, Dunedin) gathered in Auckland with their student leaders to focus on leadership skills for the year ahead.
The Edmund Rice story and servant leadership were key aspects of the retreat theme - He Waka Eke Noa, We are all in this together. On Monday the students leaders spent the day across Auckland at eight service organisations including Starship Children's Hospital and the New Zealand Police. This day challenged them to put their leadership skills to the test and reflect to their role for 2019 and into the future.
Thank you to all the students who attend, Luke Williams (St Peters College), Stephen Kennedy and Chris Leader (St Thomas of Canterbury), Tony Mullally (St Kevins College), Cathy Harrison, and Amelia Bresanello (Kavanagh College).
Carpe diem - Seize the day!
