Student Leadership Team 2023
It is my great pleasure this week to announce the student leadership team of Villanova College for 2023:
|Student Leadership Team 2023|
|College Captain||Mitchell Rieck|
|College Vice Captain||Charlie Corrigan|
|College Vice Captain||Connor Moloney|
|Student Council President||Nicholas Malanos|
|Student Committee Leaders
Portfolio Areas:Academic, Wellbeing, Cor Unum Spirit, Culture and Augustinian Community Service
The process of leadership for students is a carefully considered process of election and selection that looks to support our College and Augustinian identity.
Boys are called to nominate for leadership, and during that process take time for personal consideration, reflection and discernment. They are asked to complete an application which encourages them to have a conversation with others about leadership; parents, peers, and staff, considering what it may mean for them and how they may look to lead and influence their cohort and the College. There is a question for them to consider about legacy, about action and about Augustinian service. In addition, the students in the cohort are asked to vote and put forward the friends and student colleagues who they believe are in the best place to serve and represent them and our College.
As a school we very much put our trust in the students and their voice as to who they believe is best to represent and lead the College.
The process this year has been a wonderful experience and all boys who put themselves forward for consideration are outstanding young men. It is my genuine feeling that the cohort of 2023 will lead us very well across all facets of College life.
I congratulate these young men and look forward to working with them in 2023.
Staff Appointments Middle Leadership
I congratulate the following College staff on their appointment to Middle Leadership of the College in 2023. The first half of appointments were announced last week, and this is the second portion of our process.
We have at Villanova College an exceptionally talented group of staff and it was both a challenging and rewarding process of interview and appointment. There are some changes to our Middle Leadership team in 2023 which will provide new ideas and new directions and a revitalising of process and practices.

Mr Paul Begg, Principal
In keeping with the spirit of Reconciliation, Villanova College acknowledges the Yuggera and Turrbal peoples, as the Traditional Custodians of this land on which we stand. We pay our respects to Elders, past, present and emerging. This has always been, and always will be, a place of teaching and learning connected to country, culture and community.
