Attending their first event as our 2019 College Captains, Michaela Frantz and Joshua de Jonge have been in South Australia this past weekend with Mr Brockhus attending a School Captains Conference. Both Josh and Michaela have shared a short reflection from the weekend below.
"Over the past three days, both Michaela and I have been in Gawler, a town an hour out of Adelaide. Before arriving we were both excited yet nervous for what was to come, what activities we were going to be doing, and how we would mix with the other captains. Within 48 hours we made incredible friendships with amazing people and while writing this on the bus to the airport we are both smiling in reflection, though a bit sad at having to leave. We have made sure to all stay in touch and maintain connection."

"Josh and I were able to bond with the likeminded captains through a series of activities including presentations about our school, leadership events, a tour of Adelaide Oval, an amazing race around Adelaide, plus many more. It was eye opening to see how diverse, yet similar, each of the Salesian schools were, and how overall we share the common values of kindness, respect, and love. It was such a rewarding experience where we all came away with new ideas and initiatives that we will work hard to implement. There is no doubt in my mind that we have made special bonds with colleagues – and friends – that will last a very long time."
