Inspiring Stories

Launched in 2012, Inspiring Stories invites former students back to our school to share their stories with today’s students and talk about their memories of primary school, their achievements and what inspires them.

The stories celebrate academic achievement, recognise the drive behind sporting accomplishments and share intriguing tales of travel and adventure. They spark the imagination and demonstrate the potential our students have for creative, rewarding futures.
