Notre Dame Leeds
CERRL is helping with the 'Stella Maris’ (Star of the Sea) awards given by Notre Dame Sixth form Leeds. Awarded last year by Ann Marie Mealey of Leeds Trinity University, she said:
As young leaders at Notre Dame, working to gain a Stella Maris Award, we want to say thank you. True leadership includes a deep understanding of the virtues and how they underpin our leadership for change in our communities. You are clearly beacons of this yourselves, inspiring others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more.

The teaching will be based online with four sessions for each of the modules The details on the course are being finalized but a set of pilot lectures will take place in Early Summer – watch this space!
