Proud Mum, Terina, says having confidence in his educational achievements, enabled through the support of the Learning for Life program, has helped Bailey to develop his confidence and she's thrilled with the progress he's made. She says towards the end of primary school, Bailey's enthusiasm for school and learning had waned but since starting high school, his attitude has changed, putting it down to the return of his self-confidence. "He has been excited; he has been doing his homework and has got the whole motivation thing happening again, which is great to see. I can see that he is prepared to learn and he is much happier within himself."
He's also developing a passion for technology subjects and music, excelling in his Industrial Technology and Design subject. Describing himself as a hands-on person, he is still aiming to become a mechanic and knows he'll have to work hard to achieve that goal.
