An Anzac Day reflection

106 years ago, on April 25th, 1915, Australian and New Zealand soldiers landed on, and invaded, the Gallipoli peninsula in Western Turkey.

We were not there to defend Democracy, nor was Australia being threatened. We were involved because of our alliance with, and loyalty to, Great Britain.

#ALWAYSAMATERGIRL – Courtney Siesmaa (2015)

Class of 2015 Alumna Courtney Siesmaa knew her passion from a very young age. Her love of fashion and the visual arts lead her to pursue these subjects at school, to be accepted into an Associate Degree in Fashion Design at RMIT and more recently to secure her first job, where she is being trained as a Visual Merchandiser for JD Sports.

#ALWAYSAMATERGIRL – Melanie Shears (2003)

It’s hard to summarise my journey from Mater Christi student to malaria research scientist in a few paragraphs.

There were so many alternative paths I could have taken. My academic and professional career path has not been a straight line, but it led me to where I am today - living overseas and working in an area of science that I find meaningful and engaging.
