Yesterday Michael Maguire, NRL premiership-winning coach, motivational speaker and ambassador for Caritas Australia gave an informative, motivating and inspiring presentation during our College assembly. Michael was joined by Sr Ivy Khoury (Program Coordinator for Africa) and Cathy Hammond (Community Participation Leader). Michael spoke passionately of his recent visit to Zimbabwe in Africa, raising awareness of the millions of people who are sick and displaced, and how donations are being effectively used to improve the quality of life for these communities. The provision of wells and access to water allows communities to become self-sufficient through growing and selling food, which allows young Africans access to education.
Following the assembly, Michael had morning tea with our College leaders and spoke about how successful leadership can generate high performance and positive changes within the community.
Michael commended the College for our fundraising efforts in 2017 and encouraged us to continue to look out for and assist those who are less fortunate.
