Academic Plans for Dominic for 2011; of course much will be learnt outside of these plans whilst; helping to build a house, learning life skills and living life:)
Dominic's passion is writing, he has been writing a novel for a couple of years now and has not lost his enthusiasm. All other learning is second place to his passion, however he has seriously been directing his thoughts towards careers, what would suit best etc. We need to invest some time this year towards work experience opportunities.
