How important was it for you to balance your academic focus with other activities? eg co-curricular activities?

I find that playing sport gave me time away from school and an opportunity to clear my head. I tried to get involved in as many activities as possible. I love Art and Sport, and played in as many teams as I could eg Football, Hockey (I was in the PLC Sydney Hockey Firsts), Softball, Touch Football, and Water Polo (where I also played in the Water Polo Firsts). During my time at PLC Sydney I also was involved int he College Choir, Art Masterclasses, the Chinese Club, The Green Team / Seed and was on the Vietnam Support Committee in Year 10.
