Years 7, 8, 11 and 12 were treated to a day with Az Hamilton from Just Motivation. This is the third year Az has been to PCS and just like previous years Az made a big impact on our students. Az has an incredible ability to connect with students through stories and personal experiences to share his love for Jesus and his positive outlook on life.
Az challenged our students around the topic of wisdom focusing on Proverbs 4:5-9 Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them. Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. The beginning of wisdom is this: Get[a] wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Cherish her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you. She will give you a garland to grace your head and present you with a glorious crown.”
Students got to know each other better by working in teams, know their Bibles more by reading through some of Proverbs and to grow closer in their relationship with Jesus. Az encouraged our students to know their Bibles more by getting to know their God more and to “pursue your faith passion!” Our students walked away from this experience inspired, changed and looking forward to having Az Hamilton back in 2021.
Here are some of the students thoughts about their day with Az Hamilton:
Riley McMaster – “Az told us to read our Bible more which I think was an important message to hear”
Grace Prow – “He told great stories; they were interesting and unreal and it showed that we live in a broken world but he also empowered us to do something about it”
Arabella Kite – “It was great to work with Az and he encouraged us to get to know others better, which was great for me being new to this school I could get to know the Seniors and Year 7”
Laura Rusten – “He did an activity with us where we had to choose a word; I chose fearless, this was a great reminder to not let fear rule your life!”
Tom McIntyre – “I was impacted the most by Az telling us to read the whole verse in the Bible not just a bit as that helps us put it into context.”
