Leadership is an essential 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”.
Student Leadership structure for 2021
College Captain – Anthony Yong
College Vice-Captains – Joshua Hicks, Anthony Vassiliadis, James Russell
College Prefects – Ryan Dean, Mateo Acosta Fernandez, Gajindu Rajapakshe, Anthony Tan-Son
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:
- 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;
- To take a direct leadership role in the preparation of their rostered class mass, including encouraging classmates to attend, and
- 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 “Enter to Learn…Leave to Serve.”
