Southern Stars Leadership Program

SOUTHERN STARS LEADERSHIP PROGRAM for Authentic and Transformative leadership for School Improvement in Oceania.

The program was a Marist Mission Centre’s sponsored workshop through the initiation of the Marists Brothers of Australia and Oceania for leaders from Marist Schools in Melanesia and the Pacific. Leaders from the OMP schools were invited. Altogether, there were 24 participants with 8 from OMP schools and 16 from Marist Brothers’ schools. The presenters were Professor Br David Hall fms (ACU) and Dr Frank Malloy of Marist Schools of Australia. This is the first of its kind whereby educators from both Marist Fathers and Marist Brothers come together to collaborate for a common purpose. The workshop was held in the Marist Brothers’ Novitiate, Lomeri, Fiji, from 21—23 April, and it will continue in 2020. This program was found most fruitful by the OMP participants.
