|A Powerhouse of proud leaders - 16 May 2014|
School Leaders from across the Brisbane Archdiocese gathered at Brisbane’s Powerhouse on Monday 12 May for a day of spiritual formation. While many travelled for up to three hours by bus, the LHC representatives took a leisurely stroll (make that a fast paced walk!) to the Norman Creek Ferry and a delightful trip across the river.
The day focussed on being proud of our gifts and committed to using them for the service of others. Inspiring speakers included Matthew Ames, Kiri Groeneveld, Roman Albert and Steve Angrisano. Each spoke of their passion for life and their sense of purpose, challenging the student leaders to make the most of the talents they have been given.
Music provided by Back 2 Black and Steve Angrisano proved very popular. LHC students, Katie Endean and Aleisha-Jane Seeto-Murphy, were selected as part of a multi-school backing group and relished the opportunity to perform on the Powerhouse stage. Imogen Johnson was also an enthusiastic demonstrator of the moves for “Yes, Lord”!
Opportunities to explore personal leadership qualities, network with other leaders and explore booths promoting a variety of Catholic agencies complemented the formal presentations.
One definite highlight of the day was looking across the river to see the progress on the Bernadette Centre and Chapel of Our Lady of Lourdes from a different perspective. Everyone was proud to be able to say, “That’s my school!”
