In early March, Deputy Principals from across the Australia Mercy Education Schools Network attended a two-day seminar at Mount Lilydale Mercy College in Lilydale. Participants took part in professional learning and Mercy formation and enjoyed the opportunity to network with colleagues in senior leadership roles from across the Mercy Network.
The Program, titled Empowering Middle School Leaders, included a presentation from Audrey Brown on the importance of developing SELF alongside OTHERS and what is enabling growth for middle school leaders in Mercy schools. Facilitated sessions were also run by Sr Karon Donnellon RSM on Mercy spirituality, leadership and the journey involved.
A number of Mount Lilydale Mercy College students also presented to the group, describing the outreach opportunities and social justice actions pursued so actively by their student body.
