The first seminar is a two-day conference aimed at Social Justice Leaders, providing the opportunity to learn more about contemporary issues of social justice and the call to Christian disciples to work for a more just world. Students will learn from guest speakers and workshop among themselves to plan activities for the coming year.
The second seminar is timed to learn more about Indigenous issues in the lead-up to National Reconciliation Week and National Sorry Day. Students will be encouraged to plan for Reconciliation Week in late May.
The third seminar is an opportunity specifically for senior students with demonstrated commitment and leadership skills (Year 11) in the Ecological Justice space. Students who commit to this program must complete a full year as a member of the student-driven KM Net Zero Committee. The work of the committee commences at this event in July and continues until the end of term two in 2024.
The final seminar is for student elected to senior leadership positions to help prepare them for their role as school leaders in faith and justice.
