Get to know our College Leaders and House Captains

Isabella Agnos – College Captain

My greatest sporting moment: Watching the Richmond Tigers win the Grand Final in 2017.

My favorite book is The Hunger Games Catching Fire

Funniest moment in my life was: My friend in primary school was swooped by a Cockatoo.

In my spare time I like to: Listen to music.

The best thing about attending SMC is: Having access to a variety of subject choices.

One chore I don’t like doing is: Taking the rubbish bins out.

Leadership means to me: Expressing new ideas and creating positive environments.

To be a Lasallian Leader means: To be an inclusive and encouraging leader who ensures that peoples’ ideas are shared.

This year as a College Leader I wish to be best known as: A welcoming and approachable leader.

Five words which best describe my personality are: Organised, studious, outgoing, happy and caring.

A quote that I believe in is: Be the change you want to see in the world.

A teacher at SMC I admire is:   Emily Burns

Luis Consalvo – College Captain

My favourite song is: Night Fever by Bee Gees

Someone I admire: Someone that I strongly admire is my father because he always goes out of his way to provide me with not only exceptional advice, but key life lessons. He is someone that I will always appreciate in my life.

The best thing about attending SMC is: Meeting people in our inclusive community from different backgrounds and making lifelong friendships.

One chore I don’t like doing is: Pulling out weeds.

Leadership to me means: Being able to have a strong positive influence on someone in need and being open and approachable to anyone seeking help/advice within the community. It is something that comes naturally to people in many different ways, but leadership is always present to make someone’s life better.

To be a Lasallian Leader means: To lead and teach others the same way our founder St John Baptist De La Salle did.

This year as a College Leader I wish to be best known as: Someone who is welcoming funny, respectful, and approachable, and someone who is known for always putting others before themselves.

Five words which best describe my personality are: Funny, respectful, confident, approachable, and resilient.

A quote that I believe in is: The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. – Nelson Mandela.

A teacher at SMC I admire is: Mr Monti, because he always provides me with endless advice in relation to not only school but life in general.

Something interesting about me no one knows. Apart from soccer, my most enjoyable hobby is fishing.


Week 5: Teamwork

There are so many films and great novels that highlight this strength, and probably many more people we can think of who embody it well, across all walks of life.  As Helen Keller, American author, advocate, activist and lecturer, once said “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”

The VIA (Values in Action) website reports that the notion of a team can refer to work or sports teams, but can also refer to family, marriage/partnerships, or even a group of friends working on something together.

As people, it’s true that we need to be connected. As a result, teamwork is an empowering and rewarding strength. It connects us and helps us to support each other, aligning closely with a focus on positive relationships; a strong feature of the Lasallian ethos.

Teamwork helps us to work together towards a common goal.  and partners with Creativity, Fairness and Leadership to create wonderful community experiences, such as those we see so often at St Michael’s, including the wonderful Sports Day we recently celebrated. These events only come about because of the work and contributions of many team members, and as a result they have positive knock-on effects to literally thousands of people.

Teamwork is also alive and well in many ongoing and enduring teams at the College such as Eco Squad, and of course, a glimpse into classrooms, or onto playing fields, or a peek into any of the many meeting rooms on campus will showcase many examples of teamwork too!

In Teamwork we recognize and appreciate the talents we each bring, and importantly we celebrate our united achievements and seek continuous improvement. It’s about knowing, valuing and caring for each other and supporting each other to engage with our curiosities and reach our potential, together.

Wishing you and your respective teams a happy and fruitful weekend ahead.
