During Thursday at lunchtime all Middle School students were treated to a extra special guest presentation. Every term the ‘Inside Story Book Club’ invites a BGS staff member in to talk a bit about their favourite stories or an exciting activity from their past. This always proves to be a popular lunchtime session in the Centenary Library and this term was no exception. Mr Kruger visited to talk to the students about is past as a state level cricket player. Those lucky students who attended also got the opportunity to take home some cricketing memorabilia from Mr Kruger’s collection. Not only was the talk very interesting and engaging for the students, they got to learn a little about one of their teachers life before he came to Brisbane Grammar. Mr Kruger left the students with a few words of wisdom that he has learnt throughout his life. The following of which is listed below:
It’s important to me that when each of you leave to day you take with you one or two things to remember in the years ahead as you tackle school and transitioning into adulthood.
These are just a few key points that I have learned during my years that are really important to me:
- Make good memories
- Surround yourself with good friends and role models
- Talk – Silence is the enemy
- Celebrate your success
- Taking calculated risks and the opportunities that come with them
- It is just a game! One phase of your life – what’s next??
