Rob Pennicott Visit

Rob Pennicott ,an ex-student,  came to the school today and presented a very interesting talk about his life and his recent circumnavigation of Australian. It was a very informative and entertaining talk and the students  and staff were very engaged. The stories about the crocodiles, sea snakes, orcas and high sea swells had kids really hooked. We were also lucky enough to see five minutes footage of this amazing journey. The part where Rob is unceremoniously dumped from his hammock after the hard knocks of the night, was hilarious and the students will remember that.  I was impressed with the whole presentation and I know the kids were inspired. Rob is a very generous individual, especially with all the money and time he donates to charities around the world. One student was also lucky enough to win a three hour cruise along with an adult with his eco-friendly Tasmanian Island Cruises company.
