A Lifetime Legacy – Morris Hart

Morris Hart started as a student at Caulfield Grammar in 1936, after attending Caulfield North State School. His family lived in Inkerman Road, St Kilda; his uncles Myer and Nathaniel Blasebalk had previously attended the School in the 1920s, both being heavily involved in sport, particularly football and athletics. Morris studied for the Intermediate Certificate but his main interest at school was sport. He represented the School in both football and athletics, and was awarded House Colours (Buntine House) in 1939. Both the first eighteen and athletics team won the inter-school (AGSV) premiership in 1939. The first eighteen was coached by Billy Morcom, while Bill Grant was in charge of the athletics team.

2019 Brisbane Reunion

On Friday 12 April the CGA was delighted to host the 2019 Brisbane Reunion at the fabulous Donna Chang restaurant in the CBD. The CGA last held a Queensland Reunion on the Gold Coast in 2016 and the last Brisbane base reunion was in 2013. Given it has been several years since these events it was wonderful to reconnect with our Queensland Grammarians. The night was enjoyed by a broad group of alumni from different backgrounds and generations; we had everyone from 21 year-olds to 89 year-olds! We hope it won’t be quite so long until we are back in Queensland again. You can find more pictures from the night on our Facebook page.

A Career in Construction – Peta Krahn

Peta Krahn is no stranger to working in a male-dominated environment. She’s been involved in the Australian construction industry across the building, oil and gas, mining and infrastructure sectors for approximately 18 years. With such a wealth of knowledge Peta was a perfect candidate to speak at a recent International Women’s Day Assembly at Wheelers Hill Campus. Peta was a student at the Wheelers Hill Campus from 1989 (Year 5) to 1996 (Year 12). Peta highlighted the fact that career paths aren’t always straight forward, telling students: “For as long I can remember I always wanted to be architect. When I got uni however I asked too many questions along the lines of, ‘How much does that cost?’ ‘How long will that take,’ and ‘How will the building stand up?’ I therefore ended up whe...
