    Australian Idol star Stan Walker speaks from the heart at Kingswood High School
    14 Apr 11 @ 06:00am by OMAR HAMWI


    AUSTRALIAN Idol winner Stan Walker discussed his troubled childhood and how he overcame it during a seminar at Kingswood High School last Wednesday.

    It was one of six seminars at western Sydney high schools as part of the Young and Bold festival run by Penrith Christian ministry ImagineNations Youth.

    Walker said the students’ reactions were positive.

    “Their response has been really good. It’s so fun being with them,” he said. “We want to bring hope to them and say that ‘you can do it’.”

    Walker said sometimes young people were “scared to try”. But he noted, ironically, that his fame stopped shyness in fans who called to him from classroom windows.

    “I’m like Justin Bieber if he put on a bit of weight and a bit of colour,” he said.

    ImagineNations Youth pastor Simon Austin said students found something more in the seminars than Walker’s songs.

    “We are coming here to run a seminar to raise the level of hope for kids’ futures,” he said.

    “(The students) have been very inspired. Stan sang but they found in his talks that it’s not all about flashing lights. His story is about being a kid - who came from a rough background - who had a dream.”

    The festival formed part of National Youth Week.

    It was a big event for ImagineNations Youth as it supported the event financially and with 100 volunteers.

    The festival, held on the same day, comprised sports clinics, carnival rides, a battle of the bands, dance crew competition and computer gaming.
