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. 

Julie Cooper and Paul Cooper

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.
