Community Service - Leos
The Leo Club at The Cathedral School provides an opportunity for students to actively participate in community service activities, as a youth group sponsored by Lions Clubs International.
LEO stands for Leadership, Experience and Opportunity – and hundreds of Leo members have reaped these benefits in the 15 years since the club was formed at Cathedral. They learn to conduct meetings, organise projects and work together to achieve their goals. The attitudes and skills developed within Leos will be with them for life.
Projects include brightening the lives of children through visits to hospitals and kindergartens, regular reading programs, and running events such as discos and carnivals. Leos also conduct fund-raising activities to support worthy causes, which range from emergency relief after disasters to drug awareness programs and a host of health-related charities.
The Cancer Council’s Relay for Life is a highlight for club members each year, as is the annual State Leo Conference, where Cathedral Leos meet with other Leos from across Queensland for a weekend of fun, friendship and sharing ideas.
