Justin’s Story

Former student Justin Onek visited the school as a guest speaker with the year five and six students recently. Students had the privilege of learning about his experiences coming to Western Australia and Yale Primary from South Sudan as a six year old.

Apart from revelling in Justin’s stories about the changes, his love of sport, gruelling training to win interschool champion athlete and his ambitions about AFL, the students were thrilled when he joined them for soccer at recess on the oval. Now working at Belmont Youth Centre, Justin has certain-ly shown our students a great example of real courage and determination, an invaluable lesson in life.

Once again, thank you for visiting your old school Justin.
