Throughout the year, our College Captains and Prefects have represented Waverley College at various leadership afternoons and conferences at surrounding schools, to share ideas and leadership initiatives.
One of our College Vice-Captains, Guy Hammerschmidt, reflects on these experiences and the insights that they have gained from these valuable encounters:
We have been privileged to be invited to neighbouring schools, where we have been able to interact with extremely inspirational and influential leaders within our community, such as Dr Marjorie O’Neill, and former Prime Minister, Malcom Turnbull.
Through such experiences, we have gained valuable insights into how we as young leaders can enact real change within our own communities.
Through further collaboration with young leaders from other schools, we have had the opportunity to discuss topics and issues that are of critical relevance for us, such as refining consent education, and building a more inclusive environment for individuals within the LGBTQAI+ community.
It has been a great honour to work alongside aspiring young leaders, who we have certainly learned a lot from, and have made connections that I’m sure will continue after school. – Guy Hammerschmidt
