This morning; team 5 were given an inspirational speech from a former Pt England student; Raenan who came in with Mr Andrew Patterson. As Raenan was talking to us he was also being interviewed by Andrew Patterson. Most of the questions that Mr Patterson asked him was about school and how he felt when he started college.
One of the most inspirational quotes that Raenan had given was; "Take advantage of the opportunities in front of you". This was something that he learnt from Mr Patterson during the last four years that they've bonded or known each other.
Raenan shared with us his biggest goal that he kept with him since his first year in college. Which was to become the head boy in year thirteen at Tamaki College. In their school prize giving he got the job of being deputy head boy for 2018.
Today's speech has inspired me to do my best in school and to hold on to my life goals. After the speech that we were given today I will make sure to grasp any opportunities that come my way and make the most of them.
