Old Boys of Churchie
Even during his days as a student here at Churchie, it was obvious that Old Boy Ken Adler (1963) would carve out a successful career in the surfing industry. After being crowned Mens Champion at Queensland’s first official state surfing titles in 1964, Ken went on to represent Australia in international competition and was a finalist at the 1965 World Surfing Championships in Peru.
Old Boy Robert Pashen (1966) has made an indelible mark in the field of embryonic technology in horses and cattle. A large part of his research, both domestically and abroad, has focused on the development and promotion of techniques in equine embryo technology. Robert’s contribution to this industry has been considerable and is so highly regarded that he recently received a Pioneer Award at the 9th International Symposium on Equine Embryo Transfer and Technology, which was held in Belgium.
In July 2016, Old Boy Ian McIntosh (1974) held a series of events in the Northern Territory at the Northern Territory Museum and Art Gallery in Darwin, and at Dundee Beach. The events showcased ancient artefacts found along the Territory strand that have the potential to rewrite Australian history.
