This morning we were lucky enough to have Whaea Jose and Whaea Natalie from Te Wananga o Aotearoa come and talk to our year 8's about leadership. Students were inspired by videos from Sir Peter Blake and were encouraged to dream. Some of the dreams included:
- Being a lawyer
- Being an author
- A LEGO creator
- A policeman
- An accountant
- To go to London
- To be an inventor
- Professional Rugby, Football and NRL players
- To be a fisherman
- Being an actor
