The Student Council travelled down to Palmerston North for the National Young Leaders Day on 25 May 2022.  It was such a fun and cool experience to listen to some inspiring speakers and hear their amazing stories.  One of the quotes I was very inspired by was “Don’t fight like an octopus, fight like a shark” which means that if life is the fishing rod, an octopus would give up the fight straight away but sharks don’t give up, they fight for their freedom.  We need to have the inner fight.  Overall, it was an awesome day and I enjoyed every second of it.   Taj Taogaga, Room 19
