LAW WEEK – BALI 9 Q&A WITH VERONICA HACCOU
I am thankful we could attend this Law Week Q and A as it provided many schools with information that we never knew, and gave us all an insight into the members of the Bali 9’s lives and how they were treated prior to the execution. Veronica Haccou spoke with passion and integrity and has inspired not only me, but also everyone who was present.

HALOGEN YOUNG LEADERS DAY
Halogen is an excursion to Melbourne for junior leaders. We had to leave Bright at 5 o’clock on the 2nd March to get to Melbourne on time. When we got there, there were lots of kids, about 4000. We sat in a theatre and listened to people talking. They were talking about how to be a good leader. One of the talkers came third in the paper plane throwing world cup and he was throwing paper planes out to the audience while talking about his life. We all had a great time and it is a great opportunity to become a good leader.
