School leaders meet at Carey Grammar
ABOVE: ZANE CONNORS, CATHY FREEMAN AND LACHLAN STRATHMORE
School Captain Lachlan Strathmore and Zane Connors (Year 12) attended the inaugural School and Community Leadership Summit, held on 28 April at Carey Baptist Grammar School, and hosted by the Cathy Freeman Foundation.
The purpose of the event was to inform young Australian leaders about life in remote indigenous communities, and also to provide information about the education gap that exists in Australia.
It is hoped leaders will begin to take an active role in helping to support the indigenous children who work with the foundation, which Cathy Freeman established in 2007. The foundation aims to help indigenous children and their families to recognise the power of education, and to achieve their goals and dreams.
