2018 International Student - Hong Kong
At the age of 15, I made the decision to leave my home country of Hong Kong to study abroad in Australia. This decision was truly the most rewarding experience of my life.
The first time studying abroad in a new country frightened me. I didn’t know what was ahead and I was unsure about how I was going to cope without the support of my family. However, it is well known, that life starts at the edge of our comfort zone and for me this was the truth and shaped me into the person I am today.
It is through this amazing personal experience in Australia that I can tell you that studying at Townsville Grammar School has broadened my horizons and given me an international perspective.
In the three years of boarding at Grammar, I have been through a lot of ups and downs and I was taught many life lessons. “Enter as a boy and leave as a man” this is what Mr Moran told us and I eventually understood this by the end of my high school life.
