Year 10 - Year 12 students were fortunate to listen to a motivational speaker, Dan Jackson (AFL player) on Friday.
Dan has played 151 AFL games and was awarded the Jack Dyer Medal in 2013 for being the Best and Fairest player at Richmond. He also was the recipient of the Jim Stynes Community Leadership Award in 2012.
Dan spoke openly about the challenges of having a high pressure, high profile job and gave some excellent advice on how to succeed. His top three tips were work hard, surround yourself with positive and supportive people and most importantly enjoy what you do and have fun.
It was great to see so many students from Years 10 – 12, as well as representatives from Upper Elementary School attend this talk and learn from Dan about the value of setting goals and routines as essential parts of your individual journey towards success.
