What do you do for a living now?

Do you think your time at Holland Park helped you to pursue this? 

Yes – it fostered my love of athletics & being a small school allowed me to compete in various athletic events.  It felt like the teachers really cared about us - & were able to give each student their time & attention.   
This school also helped me realize my true passion which is helping others achieve their Fitness, Nutrition & Health goals.   

Who was your favourite teacher?

My favourite teachers would have been Mrs Bond (Maths) and Mr Phillips (Physics). They made the subjects understandable.  

What was your most memorable moment as a student?  

Receiving a Half Blue for Athletics & every year competing at State Titles for Athletics.  

Do you feel that Holland Park has changed much since you graduated?   

No – thankfully.  It was a lovely school when I was there.  Still lovely when my sister was there – 3 yrs later & still fantastic school when Aleksandr was School Captain there.
