Year 11 Community Engagement & Year 11 Student Leadership (2013)
Dongqi Yang – Wantirna College

Dongqi Yang is an active and visible student leader at Wantirna College. As International Student Captain he has demonstrated his strength of character and nature as a leader. Dongqi has been instrumental in fostering a collegiate culture within the school’s international student cohort through organising social events, talent shows and cultural celebrations. Dongqi also established a study group with the aim of improving his peers’ Maths and English skills.

Outside of the school, Dongqi has been equally active in his local community particularly with the Whitehorse Youth Representative Council volunteer group which deals with issues concerning local young people. Furthermore, his volunteer work with Homeless Swag has helped homeless people in a very practical way by providing personal sleeping spaces which fold down into a carry bag.

Dongqi has been embraced by the whole school community and has set a high standard for future leaders at the school.
