Accepted into schools nationwide, the novel addresses crucial issues affecting today’s youth, including peer pressure, bullying, racism, and substance use. Beyond the narrative, it encourages open discussions about sensitive topics like suicide and organ donation. “One Life.

School, Corporate Presentations

The One Life, One Choice presentation has been hailed as one of the best Alcohol and Drug presentations seen by secondary students and all over the world. Since late 2021, in Western Australia, the presentation has reached over 155,000 students and 11,000 parents. 

Testimonials from parents, teachers and students described the presentation as the most powerful, informative, emotional, and heartbreaking event they have attended. In 2022, a survey was conducted where 8,615 Year 9 to Year 12 students participated. A 98.5 percent mark for excellence was recorded.

The presentation tells the story of Preston Bridge, a very likable 16-year-old that jumped from a second storey balcony at a popular resort in Scarborough after his Churchland’s senior high school Year 12 school ball. Preston had taken a research chemical drug known as 25INbome a powerful psychedelic drug that caused him to hallucinate and jump to his death.

After Prestons death his father wanted answers on where the drug came from and in October 2015 he travelled to China where the manufacturers of the research chemical operate. With a news crew from 60 minutes, he exposed the drug cartel and over the ensuring 3 months 21,000 people were arrested, over 1500 factories and offices were closed.

 A further 116 research chemical drugs were banned from manufacturing and placed on the narcotics list in China.

Our very informative presentation consists of an opening introduction followed by a 20-minute powerful and informative video.  After viewing the video, the students get to meet Rodney Bridge, the father of Preston. Rodney tells the heart wrenching storey about losing his son, and his exploits in China by closing down and exposing the drug sites.

During the presentation he explains what drugs are, what they are made of and what will happen if you take them. He opens the floor to questions and answers from teachers and students.  The presentation is for all Year 8 to Year 12 students and can be completed within 45 to 60 minutes.  It is common for one life, one choice to present to a whole school environment.

Rodneys story has been viewed by over 1.4 billion people worldwide and last year he was a finalist for the 2023 Australian of the year. He removed his nomination due to being hospitalised for a back injury.  He has now recovered and returned to the speaking circuit, continuing to educate the public.

This is a presentation that all students and parents need to view, inspirational and inspiring are the words commonly used.  What better way to educate than to tell a true story from the heart.
