Empowering Young Leaders - Tuesday 2nd July 2019

Mr Richard Harvey —

On Tuesday 13 Year 12 students attended the Emerging Leaders Conference at Christ's College. This event saw 600 future leaders from a range of Canterbury schools come together for a rich learning experience. They had an opportunity to hear inspirational speeches from a range of leaders and participate in breakout workshops to network with their peers.

The highlight for many of our students was the keynote from Paralympian Liam Malone, Sian Boase saying "his presentation had a lot of insightful information regarding his own life decisions and how he made a better world for himself, which was very inspiring”. Tessa Orange said “I will always remember his story when I am experiencing difficulties and setbacks and use it as motivation to overcome them.''

Thanks to Christ’s College for hosting and The Sir Peter Blake Foundation for funding such a fantastic event.
