Student Social Justice Day

Attending the Justice Education in Catholic Schools Student Social Justice Day at Australian Catholic University (ACU) provided three of our student leaders with the opportunity to learn about the principles of Catholic Social Teaching and to consider how they could apply these principles to their roles as Justice Leaders at Siena.  FIRE Carriers Captain Rebecca Klavc, Social Justice Captain Madeleine Harriss and Social Welfare Captain Grace Oliver met with student leaders across the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne for a day of education, community and reflection.  

Our leaders attended workshops presented by Caritas Australia, Catholic Mission, ACRATH, The Benenson Society and Aboriginal Catholic Ministry Melbourne.  These sessions promoted the work of each organisation and opened up opportunities for dialogue with students from other Melbourne Catholic Schools. The theme of the day was 'Leave your mark on History' and the sessions explored how, through their work as leaders, our students could do just that.  

A highlight of the day was participating in an African Drumming Workshop facilitated by Foday Camara from Ghana.
