The Year 11 Workshop held at De La Salle Ashfield was a great success. The afternoon commenced with prayer and some input on the Life of Our Founder (St. John Baptist de La Salle) led by Lasallian Youth Minister, Aiden Moore. The focus was on how the Founder overcame all the obstacles to allow him to achieve his goals of setting up free schools for the poor children in the cities throughout France in the late 17th Century.
Mr Carter, College Youth Minister, led the boys through a goal-setting session. Students sat in small groups around tables and completed a template on their one year, three year and 10-year goals. There was some robust discussion in each of the small groups. Following the goal-setting work, Mr Corcoran (Director of Wellbeing and Learning) and Mr Garcia (Leader of Wellbeing Year 11) presented a session on Leadership.
Students were asked to think about what leadership requires and how they can be the Leaders of the College in their final years.
Br Patrick McCarthy then finished the workshop with an inspiring prayer relating to success coming from persistence, hard work and determination.
