2016 Student Leaders’ Conference – January 20-22

This year’s Student Leaders’ Conference was hosted by Aquinas College on behalf of the Western Region.

Of the 69 Year 12 students attending the event:

-          26 students were from EREA Associate schools;

-          seven girls represented their schools; and

-          one student attended from a New Zealand partner school.

The key leadership sessions were led by the Australian Institute of Management (AIM WA). 

Guest speakers included 

  • Dr Wayne Tinsey
  • Mr Terry Roberts
  • Br Brian Clery 
  • Mr Matthew McGuire and 
  • Fr Pierre Repuyan

Student feedback was unanimously positive. The highlights included obtaining tools and skills for student leadership, understanding EREA leadership, meeting new people, making connections and gaining confidence.

Sincere thanks go to Mr Mark Sawle, Principal of Aquinas College, Perth, and to the Aquinas staff who made the college facilities available to these young people, prepared the program and provided the necessary support for the three days of the conference.
