Tony Wilson: Good Enough

Session Info:

  • There’s currently a great deal of pressure on kids and it starts when they’re very young.
  • Academic pressure, extra-curricular pressure and social/emotional pressure.
  • Everyone wants young students to achieve, but expecting instant results can thwart potential.
  • A key factor of success, both emotional and academic, is the understanding that failure is part of the journey.
  • Tony shares his own feelings of ‘failing’. Delisted at Hawthorn after zero games.
  • Resilience and tenacity are vital factors.
  • Kids will join in on readings of The Cow Jumped Over the Moon.
  • There will be Group Mooing. Perhaps even some jumping too in this high energy, high impact session particularly tailored to appeal to this age group.
