3 key things students will leave the day with:

3. How to take a stand against bullying and other dangerous behaviours and become leaders.
Enjoy is an understatement!!!! I had an incredible day.
I enjoyed it because I was inspired by hearing people speak.
I was encouraged to be the change I want to see in the world.
I would come back next year because it changed my life.

to realise that I don’t need to be like my family. Boy, 14
The impact that The Stand Tall Event has had on our school is amazing ! The students expressed that the speakers gave them hope and some of them also stated that they were on the verge of giving up but hearing particular speakers gave them the courage to keep going in similar situations. Teacher, NSW High School
Before I went to Stand Tall I had given up on my dream to be a champion Basketball player because I had some setbacks, but Stand Tall made me realise I really wanted to pursue my dream and now I am playing rep level basket ball and I am so happy and it’s all because of Stand Tall. Girl, 14
Inspiring high school students to stand tall and make positive choices
STAND TALL - THE EVENT Brings together leading youth communicators with star musicians, sportsmen and other popular young successful role models from Gen Z pop culture , who will impart hope, courage to make right choices and great wisdom learned from their own life experiences.
