College Student Leadership Structure for 2018

Leadership is a very important element in any school and student leadership is crucial. It is always more than just wearing a badge. The College invests a significant amount of time in selecting the Prefect Body of the College. The best understanding of leadership that I have seen is that a leader knows the way, goes the way and shows the way. They have knowledge, action and inspiration. The “way” in a Catholic College is via Jesus who said he was the “Way, the Truth and the Life”. I am pleased to announce the full student leadership structure for 2018.

College Captain – Joshua McKenna

College Vice-Captains – Lachlan Gomatos, Lachlan Noone and Jonathan Yong

College Prefects – Jahvon Bergman, William Bolch, Dillon Bouchier, Gareth Cassidy, Aaron Clarisse, David Donovan, Dominic Folino, Andre Frederic, Harrison Kilcline, Lachlan McDonnell, Zac Milverton, Matthew Mundos, Marcus Nguyen, Ryan O’Hara, Alexander Palleschi, Rohan Pious, Ryan Rapp, Finlay Rennie, Luca Rossi, Luke Schaefer, Jed Smith, Koen Tchia, Eamon Trigg, Adam White and Jeremy Wijeyesekera

This year each of the House Captains have been made House Prefects. This has been done to promote House Activities and Acts of Service as well as supporting the Sports Department.

The role of Liturgy Prefects, at least two per Homeroom, see those young men appointed for a threefold purpose, under the staff and student leadership: 1. To support and contribute to the Sacramental and Liturgical life of the College, including having major participation in the celebration of Mazenod College Liturgies and various Homeroom liturgies 2. To take a direct leadership role in the preparation of their rostered class mass, including encouraging classmates to attend, and 3. Conscious that most leadership is lived out through example, provide a public Christian witness through their virtuous character in all activities within and without the school, and the display of the sign of the cross on their badge.
Remember to:
