GWS runs leadership forum

On Wednesday 18 February, the Student Representative Council of St Mary MacKillop College met with two members of the GWS Giants AFL Team to hear and learn about leadership and to ask questions of the two stars. The students were fortunate to have Co-Captain Phil Davis and midfielder Stephen Coniglio talk to them as part of the Giants 2015 Community Camp.

Phil and Stephen talked to the group about what characteristics they believed a strong leader should have and their experience in the professional sporting arena. They discussed the importance of leading by example, drawing inspiration from other leaders, being empathetic and compassionate and having the ability to have the difficult conversations. Both cited how inspirational their parents and families were and still are in their development.

The students who attended asked sensational questions, took inspiration from the talk and were able to relate well to both of the Giants players. Both players were an inspiration to the SRC, providing valuable advice and information to develop and strengthen their own leadership and assist them in their roles in 2015.
