Today the amazing students in Room 11 Maths spent some time after lunch with Mrs. Clarke learning about putting forth our best efforts in order to be the most successful person we can be. Mrs. Clarke told us that we need to be sure to make good choices.
Mrs. Clarke introduced us to Wynton Rufer, an amazing NZ soccer player, who wanted to date a young lady named Lisa. Lisa was a Christian and told Wynton that she would not go out with him because he was not making the best choices in his life. This made Wynton change his ways, and he later became a follower of Jesus. Lisa gave him another chance and the two are now happily married.
Wynton created a WYNRS academy that trains world class soccer players and world class citizens.
Mrs. Clarke showed us a video of Mr. Rufer persevering to keep a soccer ball off the ground and we were able to try it ourselves using a balloon. Mr. Rufer is now the coach of the PNG soccer team and he wants his team to be good role models both on the field and off.
