Crashing Into Potential

Article by Ms Kirsty Allan

Crashing Into Potential

The Year 11 VCAL students kicked off the term with a keynote address from Scott B Harris, the author of 'Crashing Into Potential'. 

The theme for the Semester in Personal Development Skills (PDS) and Literacy is Diversity. 

Scott is living with an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) and some physical impairments after a motorcycle accident while dirt-biking in 2008. He shared his road to recovery and gave us some insight around growth mindset and goal setting. 

We are really excited to be reading Crashing Into Potential in Literacy and learning much more about diversity in PDS. This will involve a community partnership with SCOPE Victoria and hopefully also Nelson Park College. 

Scott will be returning later in the term to run a resilience workshop as a well as an ABI workshop, which is definitely something for us all to look forward too.
