The day kicked off with an inspirational guest speaker: Christine a fellow volunteer
Christine Casey is another Aussie volunteer here in Tonga. She is just like us… here for the year but… is totally blind and has been so since birth.
Having no sight has not stopped her getting a university degree, teaching music in both special and mainstream schools, volunteering last year in Fiji and now living with a Tongan family for a year. Christine spoke about the opportunities she has had and encouraged students to embrace opportunities given to you, create their own opportunities and give opportunities to others. It was humbling yet inspirational and I admire her courage to live an ordinary life in an extraordinary way. Ofa atu Christine may your year be as amazing as ours.
