Five years after its first edition, the Pinunong Recoleto Leadership Camp is back!
The second edition of the leadership training centered on inculcating Augustinian Values among student-leaders happened via Zoom Meeting last November 26 and 27, 2021 with 66 participants from six Recollect education centers in the Visayas.
Rev. Fr. Rommel L. Rubia, OAR, led the line-up of speaker-trainers. Fr. Rubia, who is now the Vice-President for Administration at San Sebastian College-Recoletos de Cavite, discussed “Augustinian Values in Leadership” and emphasized that Recollect student-leaders are unique because of their charism of being “contemplative, communitarian and apostolic.”
Participating schools to the virtual leadership camp included University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos (Bacolod City, Negros Occidental), Colegio San Nicolas de Tolentino (Talisay, Negros Occidental), San Pedro Academy (Valencia, Negros Oriental), San Pedro Academy-Recoletos (Caidiocan, Valencia, Negros Oriental), University of San Jose-Recoletos de Balamban (Balamban, Cebu) and Colegio de Sto. Tomas-Recoletos. CST-R is the organizer and host of Pinunong Recoleto.
Student-leaders who joined the leadership camp were from the student councils of the abovementioned schools. As workshop output, participants made info-graphics that highlighted the four topics by the four different speakers.
