Cornish students strive to make a difference in the world and this determination continues into adulthood as alumni. Here are some wonderful stories about how our alumni are applying what they learnt at Cornish to their everyday lives.
Siblings Julie Cooper (CC2004) and Paul Cooper (CC2007) loved their time as Cornish students. Little did they know that they would end up back here!
Julie planned to work in emergency medicine, but now teaches Science, Health and VCE Biology at Cornish College and is also the Year 10 Academic Care Leader – a role she loves.
Paul qualified as a commercial cook and then studied multimedia design and systems administration. He worked in app development and lighting and design in theatre, before commencing as an Audio Visual Technician and a Woodwork Technician at Cornish.
Ravi Kamisetty (CC2005) took a gap year at the end of Year 12 before completing an undergraduate degree in dentistry and then a research honours degree in Adelaide. He worked as a dentist in Melbourne and then as a locum throughout Victoria and Tasmania, before completing further postgraduate study in Adelaide to specialise in orthodontics. He has been working as an orthodontist ever since, and purchased his own clinic in 2020.
