Leading for Life - LEO Club

08 Nov 2022

Leo Clubs are a sponsored affiliation of Lions Club International that encourage young men and women to serve others in their community and around the world. 

Mount View Leo Club is affiliated with Cessnock Lions Club and we have Ian Anderson (former principal of MVHS), Peter Conroy (former Deputy Principal of MVHS) and Grahame Chamberlain (former HT of MVHS) as our Club supervisors. 

Miss Bell is the teacher supervisor.

LEO stands for:

Leadership - as members acquire skills as project organisers and motivators of their peers 

Experience - as they discover how team work and cooperation can bring about change in their community and the world 

Opportunity - as they develop positive character traits and receive recognition for their contributions 

We held a change over dinner on Thursday 24th August. The night went very well and a big thank you to Sarah Bendall and the Hospitality Team for a delicious two course meal. Everyone commented on how professional the students executed their jobs on the night. The new executive was inducted as well as some new members.

On 1st September, the Mount View Leo club, in association with the Cessnock Community LEO Club held a fundraiser to raise money for brain cancer. Hypnotik performed his illusion and hypnosis show to a very appreciative audience. We managed to raise $1500 which will be split between the Mark Hughes Foundation and Neuroendocrine Cancer Australia. 

On Sunday 23rd October and Saturday 5th November, the LEOs ran the Bunnings BBQ in conjunction with Cessnock Community LEOs. Thank you to all the students who took time out of their weekend to help with serving and cooking. We managed to raise about $1000 each weekend.

On Saturday 5th November, Lions Australia held their conference at the Leagues Club. The LEO club were invited to participate in the opening flag ceremony. The students involved performed their job exceptionally well and were a credit to the LEO club.
