Reminiscences Doug Kirkham (1985)

Recently the School hosted a Rugby touring party from Carre’s Grammar School in Lincolnshire, England.  The boys had visited St Joseph’s College in Sydney prior to venturing north and playing the School. For Sydney based Old Boy Douglas Kirkham (1985), right of picture, there was a lot riding on the outcome of the Churchie v Carre’s Grammar School game.  Equally interested in the game’s outcome was Daniel Gamble, an Old Boy of Carre’s Grammar and now also living in Sydney.

Zac gives us an insight to his life as an American college student at Arizona State University (ASU). I break my life up into three distinct areas: school, sport and social. The past twelve months has been full of events and times where I was able to enjoy all three whilst making progression. The balancing act is not always an easy one, but I feel that as each year goes by I get better and better. With school, I have changed my major from accounting to marketing as I feel it is more suited to my ambitions. I have secured an internship with the ASU sports marketing department and I am hoping that the experience will help open doors and…
