Hastings Secondary College have been lucky enough to secure a presentation by Andrew Fisher, a racing car driver who presents across the country for the Life Choices Foundation. The presentation will occur on Wednesday 18th November and all Westport Campus Year 9 students will participate in his hour-long event.
Andrew will challenge teens to stop and think through the consequences of some of life’s significant choices, for themselves. He will encourage them to choose the path that is ‘right’ for them. Andrew will speak from the heart about issues that are real to young people today including addiction, social media, relationships, road safety, values and beliefs.
Andrew also shares his personal story, about his daughter, Lily, who was born with half a heart. The openness Andrew displays sharing the hard decisions that he and his wife, Annie, had to make creates an amazingly honest connection with the students. Andrew links his experience and those tough decisions back to the “courageous decisions” that the students will need to make in their lifetime.
As an added bonus Andrew also brings along one the team’s replica race cars for the students to see.
