A Career is a Journey – Kate Hanly

Caulfield experience Graduating from Caulfield Campus in 2007, Kate Hanly is a true representation of how a career is not simply a means to an end, but rather a lifelong, fulfilling journey.

This provided some of her favourite memories from schooldays – spending many hours on the Yarra River and representing the School as a member of the first eight. She loved the sense of comradery that the rowing community embraced – the early mornings, teamwork, friends and mentors. All of which culminated in a sense of gratification that only comes from working hard collectively; it provided a valuable life lesson. Kate also...
