Some people see volunteering as an impossible task, but 2019 graduate Antheny Cranston believes it’s very rewarding.
“It’s been busy. Keeps me on my toes for a little bit,” says Antheny.
Antheny graduated from Northern Adelaide Senior College at the end of 2019 after two years studying Stage I and II subjects in General and Essential Maths, English, Scientific Studies, Ancient Studies and Research Project.
“I was here for two years studying and I came back as a volunteer,” says Antheny.
“I love it here. Brilliant teachers. Awesome learning environment.
“I came back to help people. I didn’t want to see people struggling in a position that I used to be in.”
Last year Antheny was involved in the Student Organising Committee (SOC) and he’s returned to help mentor students in SOC and Leadership.
“I am a mentor for Leadership and SOC-groups. Leadership is a class whereas SOC is where like-minded individuals meet who want to do stuff for the school,” says Antheny.
“It’s not my school anymore, it’s their school and I want to help their vision for it.”
Antheny hopes to pursue a career in the Australian Navy as either an analyst or technician.
“If not I’ll come back here as a mentor and possibly pursue an SSO position,” Antheny smiles.
