Lourdes Hill College aims to instil in each student the value of walking the path of the Good Samaritan and the 2022 College Captains, Ella Raymond and Ella Stone, have walked this path with pride this year.
Ella and Ella have been awarded the Future Leaders Future Justice Award for 2022 to recognise their commitment to leadership and creating a better world for future generations.
The award acknowledges a Year 12 student who has demonstrated leadership and initiative on intergenerational equity, future justice.
Guided by the College’s three stories based on the Parable of the Good Samaritan, the Benedictine tradition and the miracle at Lourdes, Ella Stone said she was grateful for the experiences and opportunities that have been a part of her journey at the College.
“The people I’ve met from a vast array of backgrounds and the lessons I’ve learnt about compassion and generosity have ultimately shaped who I have become,” she said.
Ella Raymond said she has learnt the importance of human rights from the story of the Good Samaritan and emulated this through her work with the College’s HOPe (Hospitality Outreach Group) program.
“HOPe has allowed me to continue my passion to help less fortunate children and has inspired me to engage in community service outside of school,” she said.
Both students have demonstrated service to the College community and the wider community, which will not only make a difference today but will continue to create change in the future.
Ella Raymond has appreciated the privilege of receiving an education so much so that she has decided to study Secondary Education and Humanities and give back the gift of education to future generations.
Ella Stone wishes to follow her passion for service after graduating, working with Rosies Friends on the Street and the Salvation Army. She aims to pursue a career in International Law to dedicate herself to making the world a better place.
Ella and Ella are now paving the way for student leaders who will follow them as they try to leave behind a better world for future generations.
The College is proud to have fostered four years of Future Leader Future Justice Award winners and hopes to continue to guide the future leaders of our society down the path of the Good Samaritan.
