Last Friday, a group of 8 representatives from the Thornleigh Student Council went to Savio House in Bollington for a leadership weekend. Present at the event were representatives from the six Salesian schools in England.
Students were able to share good practise and learn from the experience of students in the other schools as well as making new friends.
During the weekend students reflected on the strengths of their student council and any problems that had been encountered and how they had been dealt with.
They were introduced to the Salesian School Charter and were involved in role playing an interview scenario.
As a newly established School Council, the students from Thornleigh represented the School exceptionally well. They came back with a renewed purpose, ideas for the future and a lot of new friends from the Salesian community.
