The foundations of my life as a soldier and citizen were laid during my education at Saint Pauls College. Etched on the cornerstone of these foundations were the words 'fight the good fight'. This motto became my guide, and I was inspired by the example of knowledge, strength and compassion portrayed by the teachers, students and families that were part of my College experience.
St Paul's helped me develop a sense of social responsibility and emphasised the importance of making a positive contribution to the community.
St Paul's teachers' genuine interest in their subjects and students provided me with the capacity to achieve a competitive tertiary admission rank and allowed me to pursue study in the field of Mechatronics Engineering at Adelaide University.
The willingness to go to extra lengths to offer me great learning experiences and create an environment that was conducive to learning that was shown by my subject teachers, encouraged me to reach my goal of going to university to study towards becoming a teacher.
St Paul's College was the making of me. I formed life-long friendships with students and staff. A great school.
St Paul's provided me with many wonderful experiences that I carry and reflect on every day. It offered broad based learning environment, developing knowledge and skills that have proved invaluable throughout my career and life. I look upon the time I spent at St. Paul's College with a great deal of fondness.
