Visit from The Hon. Gregory Donnelly, MLC

Yesterday, we were fortunate enough to have The Hon. Gregory Donnelly, MLC - Labor Member of the Legislative Council, back to the College to speak to a group of Year 9 and 11 students.
6 Dec 2022

Mr Donnelly is an 'Old Dad', as his children went to Redfield and Tangara. He talked about his early career in the SDA and his progression in the Labor party to being a Member of the Legislative Council of NSW.

He reminded the boys to stand up for their values and beliefs, saying, "When you are under the pump - get stuck in. You have to live your life, no one else is going to do that for you. You have to be accountable for the decisions and actions that you take."

Such a great piece of advice! Thank you for visiting, Mr Donnelly. The boys had a great time listening to you. We hope you enjoyed your visit, and that you can come again soon!
