Hello! We hope you are finally starting to enjoy the spring weather!

King’s University College at Western University is pleased to announce the 14th Annual Catholic Student Leadership Conference. In partnership with the Ontario Catholic school boards, our objective is to offer students with either demonstrated or potential leadership skills, the opportunity to develop and strengthen Catholic Student Leadership in our schools and communities through interaction with other student leaders as well as inspirational and informative workshops. It is a one day event; however, if you are travelling from a distance, we would like to extend the invitation for you and your students to arrive the night prior to stay in our residence complementary of King’s with dinner and breakfast included. 

We invite you to encourage those students to participate whom you and your colleagues feel would both contribute to and learn from this experience. Ideally, we would love to host approximately 20-30 students in grades 10 - 12 from your school: we are interested in participants who are active in your faith community or who have the potential to become involved, regardless of gender, grades, or post-secondary plans.  Carpe Diem reflects our desire to encourage students to “seize” every opportunity to further develop their leadership skills and to try each and every day to be mindful of their faith and gifts. 

The success of the day surrounds the identification and involvement of your student leaders. We ask for your help and support of our efforts. Your nomination of students is so important to us!   Registration for the conference is free and includes refreshments, snacks and a BBQ lunch. In lieu of a registration fee, we are asking, where possible, to please bring a donated canned good. At the end of the conference, we will drop the student donations off at the London Food Bank. 

Students will be able to view the conference agenda and workshops as well as complete the registration form directly on our website at: http://carpediem.kings.uwo.ca

If your child is a minor, and you would like them to attend the conference, please fill out our parent/guardian permission form here.

We thank you in advance for your participation and we look forward to hosting your students!
