The SRL students had a chance to listen to inspirational stories of leadership.   Three guest speakers engaged us with their motivational speeches, Charlie Bezzina, Alice Pung and Mike Rolls.  They spoke about their life story and what qualities motivated them to be leaders.   Charlie Bezzina was an investigator and said to always respect others because of his experience. He spoke about reputation and how decisions we make in the present can impact the future. Alice Pung, an author of many stories spoke about her childhood, spoke about the racism her family experienced because they were Asian and how she deals with it. Her stories have a sense of humor but they also tell people that we should have rights, be equal and stop racism. Mike Rolls was a former football player who caught meningococcal, a serious disease. He shared his story of making the most in life, even when something sets you back. His story taught us to love ourselves and that you should make the most of every opportunity because you can’t go back. We have learnt lots from this experience and will be sharing the messages with others.   Milana Bruno, Tiffany Georgiou, Charlotte Gerada, Audrey Gerada, Jennifer Luu, Patrick Sprekos   Michelle Perceval Mathematics Leader Read More
