Year 7 students headed off to the Perth Convention Centre to Thrive , a program designed to help Year 7 students settle into High School.
Students were lucky enough to meet Akrah Azumi, Young Australian of the Year, Preston Smiles, Rapper Marksman Lloyd and the founder of Australian You Tube sensation How Ridiculous. Each speaker gave them their own story of how they succeed, perseverance, determination, trial and error and overcoming failures.
Students also participated in activities which developed team working skill, challenged their comfort zones and some that were just really good fun.
Myla Odenko and Cai Foster-Wilson, Year 7 Student Councillors said ‘In our opinion it was fun for every Year 7 there (over 2500) and we learned lots’.
