Armed with information (Year 10 keynote)
Stories do matter and as such should be shared with future generations. Through the re-telling of a highly personal experience, Glenn will help students discover the benefit of conveying their emotions via conversation and/or pen and paper in order to deal with the challenges confronting them.
My story vs yours (Year 10 workshop )
Using the key note presentation as a platform - small groups of students will work towards discovering what their own story is and how to shape its future direction. Once again personal insights will be shared and interactive activities will be used to highlight issues/topics/ideas.
