Student Leadership Seminar

On Tuesday the 2022 Student Leaders participated in a workshop facilitated by Yellow Arrow. Together they focused on the importance of having a clear vision, discussed different type of leaders and set goals for the year ahead.

Some of the 'lightbulb moments' and comments from the workshop included:
  • “If you have a purpose, you will be more passionate”
  • “The different types of leaders (DISC) and how we can all bring out different strengths together to form one great leadership team”
  • "It’s not always about meeting deadlines and stresses but also engaging a community and having fun”
