Alumni Talk

By Laura Wood


Thank you to SBSC for all of the warm wishes. It is such an honour to be able to represent my country and especially at the most important and most highly regarded event. To have your support like I have ever since commencing at the College in 2008 has been such a great experience and makes me proud to be a former student. The letter of congratulations made me ponder with excitement to know that I have the support of a community which means so much to me and has helped me along the way!

I would like to thank Frank Pisano and the staff their at St Brendan's for a fantastic education which has enabled myself to go on and achieve some pretty neat things in the health and fitness industry. I have attached a newspaper article which ran recently in the Advocate in and also in Victorian newspapers.

Former St Brendan's Shaw student is turning pages in the health and fitness industry.
The former Tasmanian and St Brendan's Shaw College student has, over the past 15 years, been forging a career within the health and fitness industry. One of his career highlights is recently co-writing and self publishing a healthy recipe magazine. After graduating at St Brendan's in 2001 Kallum furthered his education at a tertiary level and by 2005 had finished a Bachelor of Science. Since this time he has pursued a career coaching people towards healthier, fitter lifestyles. We caught up with Kallum when he was home visiting family in Ulverstone. "My favourite subject at St Brendan's was science but had no idea my education would lead me to a career in fitness." he said surprised. "It has been an unbelievable journey and so rewarding helping people better themselves". He encourages all students to continue their studies in Maths and English because of their "real world" application.
