Andrew Hastie on Campus

Federal Member for Canning Andrew Hastie was recently interviewed by Year 10 Media students at Austin Cove Baptist College.

Mr Hastie encouraged students to set challenging goals for themselves, and then work hard to achieve them while they are still young. He said "Once you know how tough you can be, it empowers you to overcome life's obstacles".

Students were nervous but excited at the prospect of meeting Mr Hastie, and will use this experience to further develop their media skills.
