On Tuesday 19 March, the Year 11 and 12 VCE VM students worked with students from Marcellin College and Catholic Ladies College in a full day program at OLMC conducted by Glenn Manton. Glenn is a youth advocate who focuses on engaging students through powerful story-telling. Communication, relationships, connectivity, respect, resilience, positive life choices and responsibility were just some of the themes touched on throughout the day.

The VCE VM students enjoyed the opportunity to work collaboratively with students from the other schools, and were pleased to share our wonderful kitchen facilities with their peers in the opening muffin baking session. It was a great way to initiate a positive working relationship with the Marcellin and CLC students in an authentic and fun activity. Plus we got to enjoy our delicious muffins in a lovely shared morning tea! The students across the three schools will have further sessions with Glenn in Terms 2 and 3 as part of their VCE VM Personal Development Skills studies.
