Year 8/9 enjoyed a visit from former High School students, WIllabel and Gali Grindley-Bennett. Willabel is a passionate advocate for human rights, which she awoke to in year 6/7 when she first wrote a letter to a politician about refugees, and how this awakening continued in the history and geography classes. She talked about how drama helped her to be a confident communicator, that her capacity to write articulately was also seeded in High School, as well as a strong work ethic and self motivation to learn. Gali spoke about the path from play to exploration/experimentation in Primary School, the support and freedom to follow his interest in making go-karts; and then how in his HSC this transformed into design and skilful execution in his major work.
