It is always a privileged and an honour to be invited back to my old alumni for any reason, least of all to speak with the year 12’s. Even if it was the morning after a 32hour flight, I’m still happy to speak with the youth of tomorrow.
As always, my prep was weeks in advance and I had been briefed on the topic. When I started, you could’ve heard a pin drop, however, but the time I finished, they were noisy as ever they should be. Apparently they clapped louder & longer for me than anyone else they’ve had in front of them! Go me!
At the end of the day, the year 12’s are the winners and I hope in my heart of hearts, that a few of them got a message to better themselves. I can’t ask for more than that.
