BSSC’s Specialist Sports Life Skills program got off to an incredible start on Monday with a visit from former AFL premiership player, educator, and entertainer, Glenn Manton. The session was both challenging and extraordinary for students who were invited by Glenn to “loosen up”, step out of their comfort zones and talk to one another about things that matter.

Students and staff explored what they value most through a series of questions and conversations in an environment that was both caring and intense… with loads of humour thrown in.

An impossible session to sum up in a few words; Glenn described it as “choosing to be extraordinary”.

“All of my greatest successes have grown from my biggest failures,” he told students. “Never stop talking… never stop asking question.”

Glenn has been engaging audiences for over 20 years with his unique blend of education and entertainment. A dynamic storyteller Glenn is able to draw upon his vast life experience to move audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
