Old Boys of Churchie
A recent visit to the School by three esteemed Old Boys from the medical profession was a wonderful opportunity for them to share their specialist knowledge with the Year 11 students. Dr Anthony Russell (1986) an Endocrinologist, Dr Rowan Porter (1985) and Dr Andrew Kleinschmidt (1989) who are Ophthalmologists, shared insights into the motivations and work of the IDEAS (Indigenous Diabetes Eyes And Screening) Initiative.
This year marks a special milestone for the Overseas Study Scholarship program, which was founded in 1992 by a charitable trust established by the family of an Old Boy. At the upcoming OBA Annual Dinner on Friday 29 August, the Churchie Foundation will be awarding the 100th scholarship to an Old Boy. Below is an account from Old Boy Charles Smith (2005) on his experience as a scholarship recipient.
With more than ten years financial experience in executive finance roles, Old Boy David Marriott now has a strong and diverse background that extends beyond Australia and into North America.
