Id Quod Volo

Year 11
The Year 11 Students participated in Id Quod Volo ("That which I desire") Leadership Day with their Homeroom Teacher and House Coordinator on Wednesday 18 June. The day marked the start of their journey towards student leadership in 2015. The students will take the next six weeks to discern whether or not they will nominate themselves for a formal leadership position in Year 12. The six Houses travelled to different venues to further develop skills in the areas of leadership, team work, communication, service and reflection. The day's activities also focussed upon the nature of the various leadership positions and the criteria and process for nomination.

Campion students started the day with indoor rock climbing and then spent the afternoon in leadership centred reflection and discussion.

The students returned from their experiences inspired, determined and better equipped to meet the leadership challenges that lie ahead. On another note, the College hopes that the Year 11s enjoy their Supper Dance tonight at the East Fremantle Yacht Club, no doubt they will look beautiful from the inside out!
