Year 11 Leadership Week details

Year 11 Leadership Week

During Retreat/QCS preparation Year 11 students were informed about Leadership Week 27–30 November 2018. A brief outline was detailed regarding what is happening during the week and requirements regarding Semi-Formal.


  • Tuesday 27 November: Day 1 – The focus of this day will be centred on what makes a good leader, leadership qualities, how you can be a leader and not a person with a position, and voting for leadership positions. This process will further shortlist the people who will deliver a captain’s speech. There will be guest speakers to inspire the students.
  • Wednesday 28 November: Day 2 – Students will be involved in small group work on committees, speeches for captains and fun activities to foster community spirit.
  • Thursday 29 November: Day 3 – Orientation Day. There is a later start for Year 11 students who will arrive at 11:30am. A request for volunteers will be made to welcome the new students to St Patrick’s College. Students will be listening to Committee Chair speeches and future planning.
  • Friday 30 November: Day 4 – Culminating event- Students will participate in a Paraliturgy. Following this there will be a BBQ, concert and activities on the oval. Students will be able to depart earlier at 11:30am. The venue for the Semi-Formal is at the Mackay Turf Club. The cost of the ticket will be $90. These tickets need to be purchased by Thursday 15 November. The evening commences at 6:30pm and concludes at 10:30pm. A taxi will be phoned at the parent’s expense if students are not collected by 11:00pm. The cost includes venue hire, buffet meal, DJ, table set up and balloons. The College does not encourage or condone in any way the hosting of post Semi-Formal events.
  • FAILURE TO ATTEND LEADERSHIP WEEK MEANS THAT STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ATTEND THE SEMI-FORMAL (exception – Workplace Traineeship or a medical certificate for illness). Please contact Mrs Brauer if there are any issues regarding this matter.
