Recently, 18 leaders from OC joined 2,500 students from across Queensland and Northern New South Wales at Halogen’s Young Leaders Day. The day included a range of activities along with listening to prominent Australians share their journeys and life lessons.
Disability advocate, John Coutis, shared how he has spent his life defying the odds. Acclaimed author, Jackie French, opened up about how she didn’t allow dyslexia to stop her from achieving her dream of becoming an author. Television presenter, Erin Molan, outlined how important persistence and resilience has been throughout her career, while Australian netballer and reality TV star, Bianca Chatsfield, shared tips on how to bounce back when things aren’t going to plan.
All young leaders took something away from the day and were fantastic ambassadors for Ormiston College.
