With about 220,000 young people doing their final Year 12 exams, ReachOut.com wants to remind them that there’s life after their final exams. It’s a message that many of us parents probably need to be reminded of too!
“For some who did well in their Year 12 exams, things often turn out very differently than they planned. For those who didn’t get the results they wanted, life has also taken them in different and interesting directions. Either way, they all agree that there’s plenty of life after the exams,” said ReachOut.com CEO Jonathan Nicholas.
More than 50 high profile Australians have already pledged their support for the ReachOut.com campaign by recording a video at thereslifeafter.org. Renowned Australians such as Ita Buttrose, Adam Spencer, Rove McManus, Malcolm Turnbull, Bill Shorten and many more have told their unique Year 12 exam stories.
ReachOut says school stress and final exams are listed as one of the key concerns for young Australians. The organisation has helped millions of young people over the last 16 years going through tough times, with a significant peak in requests for support and information around exam times.
ReachOut.com invites all Australians to share their message of support for young people this October. Reach out to a student this month to let them know there’s life after Year 12 exams by sharing a video from thereslifeafter.org, or create your own video, and use the hashtag #thereslifeafter
