Year 10 students had quite the surprise on Tuesday when West Coast Eagle player and Trinity College Old Boy Fraser McInnes ('10) stopped by during lunch for a quick chat.
Fraser had planned to be a part of the Year 10 Careers Carousel, but he was unable to attend on the day. He visited the College this week instead and spoke to the boys about his experience at Trinity, his career in the AFL, and provided some insight into the life of a professional footballer.
One of the topics Fraser spoke about was the importance of being a well-rounded person. He encouraged the students to follow their dreams, but emphasized the importance of having more than one passion or interest, and being able to create multiple opportunities for yourself. He used himself as an example, and spoke about following his lifelong dream to become a footballer, while also supplementing that dream with a university degree in Property and Finance.
Fraser urged students to âenjoy the journey' to their futures, and to always focus on becoming âMen for Others.'
