On Thursday 23 February fourteen of our student leaders attended the GRIP Student Leadership Conference in Melbourne. The students joined about 2000 other students at the Melbourne Convention centre for the conference. The theme of this year?s conference was RESPONSIBILITY. Responsibility in leadership means accepting the duty to contribute to others and follow through on expectations. After the keynote session, The Compass of Leadership? the students split up to attend smaller sessions with a specific focus. The optional workshops attended by the students included:
Option 1: Generating Ideas that are Outside the Box
Student leaders seem to like the concept of being creative, but often default to only replicating the events and activities of previous leaders. This workshop taught leaders how to use a valuable tool for generating new and exciting ideas that meet the necessary balance of being both creative and realistic.
Option 2: Overcoming the Challenges of Leadership
The journey of every leader will involve challenges of some kind. This workshop explored challenges leaders face in the form of people, places and personal struggles. Students learned practical ways to show resilience so that challenges can be embraced and become a positive experience in a leadership journey.

Year 12 VCAL helps Warrnambool and District Food Share
What does Warrnambool and District Food Share do? Volunteers collect food donations from local supermarkets and other food shops. The food they collect is healthy and nutritious and is either end of line, mislabelled or overrun stock quite suitable for human consumption.
Food Share is managed by a voluntary board of directors organised by Mr Friebe. Who do they help? In 2014 over 102,000 kgs of food was distributed to over 6000 people. Their service is around Warrnambool, Moyne, Corangamite, Glenelg and Southern Grampian Districts.
Year 12 VCAL Food Drive ? How can YOU help?
Year 12 VCAL students are organising a food drive of non-perishable goods during weeks 7 & 8 (Tuesday 14th- Friday 24th March 2017).
We would appreciate it if everyone could donate an item of food for the food drive, some items can include pasta, rice, canned fish, canned vegetables, canned fruit, cereal, canned soup, baked, beans and canned spaghetti. Perishable items like dairy products and vegetables will not be accepted.
All donations are to be taken to the canteen to be packed into boxes by the Year 12 students. They will then deliver all goods to the Warrnambool and District Food Share. Thank you for your help. Year 12 VCAL students.
