Presentation Update: The Kings School

Presentation Update: The Kings School

Our most recent N2C presentation was at The Kings School in Sydney in the lead-up to Round 5 of the Porsche Carrera Cup Championship at Sydney Motorsport Park where we presented to more than 400 year 10 and year 12 students.

The King’s School Parramatta is Australia’s oldest independent school and perhaps its best known. Founded in 1831 by command of King William IV of England, King’s was established as a boys’ school that would provide Australia with its next generation of leaders. Situated on 300 acres of park-land in the demographic centre of Sydney, King’s has also endeavored to give educational leadership by contributing richly to educational and social debate.

Kings is renowned for its academic accomplishments plus sporting achievements in Basketball, Cricket, Rowing, Swimming and Tennis in summer and Football, Rugby or Cross Country in winter. In addition, King’s has a proud record in Athletics and Rifle Shooting.

We were approached by Wally Tarasenko who runs The King’s School ‘Boys to Men’ (B2M) program for their Year 10 students. This program seeks to better prepare boys for life in the real world covering areas such as Driving, Cooking, Ironing, Finances, Sex and Intimacy (how to treat a lady), a week long trek learning life skills, etc. The young men from Kings really connected with the messages from N2C, this being proven by the fastest responses we have ever had to the offer of completing our online feedback form.

Here is some of what the students had to say:

What was the strongest message you took away from the presentation? Not to take your life for granted as it can be cut short at anytime, so the need to take care and be aware is important in public and especially on the roads.Samuel Callow - Student at The King's School
This is a wonderful presentation brought by great speakers. It can potentially save many lives if presented to other schools as teens can understand dangers of irreversible actions.Andrew Chen - Student at The King's School
What was the strongest message you took away from the presentation? The strongest message I got from the presentation is that while you can follow your dreams and do whatever you want while on this world, you need to think about consequences and about your decisions as anything could happen to you at any time. Tom Goode - Student at The King's School
What was the strongest message you took away from the presentation? The strongest message from the presentation was when Paul Stanley told us to close our Eyes and think about the person you love a lot and talking to them for the last time. He told us to keep safe so its never our last day to see our parents. Nikhil Patel - Student at The King's School
