‘Fostering each student’s potential for greatness’ is a lofty goal set for Hills Grammar staff. However, it is fundamental to School’s mission, and as such, makes it most gratifying to follow the varied paths of its alumni, whose ‘greatness’ is exhibited in so many creative and significant ways.
Hills Grammar has been privileged to tap into the wealth of alumni experience and knowledge through its Partner in Learning program, where past students become experts in the classroom for specific areas of study, from Kindergarten to Year 12. This month we congratulate two such alumni.
Camille Goldstone- Henry (Class of 2009) has been selected as a finalist in the 2021 Women’s Weekly Young Woman of the Year Award – the winner to be announced in December. Camille‘s passion for nature led her to study Animal and Veterinary Bioscience with a focus on Australian native fauna, conservation and wildlife management. She is the founder of Xylo Systems Australia; a web-based platform set to revolutionise how Australian conservation teams to track, manage and connect conservation initiatives.
Raj Labadie (Class of 2018) was a popular actor, singer and musician during his years at Hills Grammar and his talent for entertaining didn’t go unnoticed when he auditioned for WAAPA (Western Australia Academy of Performing Arts) only weeks after leaving school. Three years later, as a young graduate with outstanding crits on his undergraduate work, WAAPA awarded Raj the prestigious Lesley Anderson Award for Acting.
We look forward to following Camille and Raj as their careers and passions lead them to further challenges and personal growth
