A BUSY 10 YEARS – FRANCIS’ STORY
Francis Ventura was always busy at school. Clubs, committees, studies and leadership were all part of his daily routine. From there he would follow up with extra commitments out of hours- tutoring refugees at the Edmund Rice Centre in St Albans or campaigning for a political cause with his mother. Working hard, giving back to others and supporting people in need quickly defined his identity.
FROM ACADEMIC TO ENTREPRENEUR
Tony Tan loved being involved with everything at school; bored with focussing on his heavy academic load of 7 VCE subjects over two years and an external language course he also managed to throw himself into a school production, social justice activities, camps, a trip on the Young Endeavour and participation in sport. That foundation has continued into his adult life beyond CBC.
FROM ST.KILDA TO LORD OF THE DANCE!
Soon after starting at CBC in Year 7 Thommy Wilson made a name for himself for a unique talent and skill- he was the first Irish dancer that most of us had met. Not only was he already an accomplished dancer but the CBC community soon learnt that he was a champion- for the next few years as Thommy travelled around the country to competitions he would come home with more medals, trophies and titles.
HAPPY IN HOLLYWOOD!!
Felix Mallard always knew where he wanted to go. His acting, modelling and music career began before he even got to CBC and during his six years at the College he worked away in his own time to build his profile. Small roles in TV and commercials was a good start. His band, ‘Enemies Alike’ was playing local gigs around Melbourne and performing at school music events and ACC ‘Battle of the Bands’ competitions.
