Past Scholars

HCCS is thrilled that many of our Past Scholars enjoyed their time at Verdun so much that they now enroll their children or become staff members.

It is always a difficult time for a Primary School to develop and maintain link with Past Scholars and we are hopeful to improve our contact with the strategic use of Facebook and other social media.

If Past Scholars would like to email enquiries@hccs.sa.edu.au we will add them to our database.

Please add any comments you like to your graduating class.

PRESS RELEASE 28/10/04 Olivia Stratton’s World Tour as Miss World Australia Olivia Stratton – has recently returned from a 3 month around the world trip for her Year of Service as Miss World Australia. Olivia was chosen from over 500 girls nationally to represent Australia at the Miss World competition, held in China for 4 weeks last December. Despite only 11 days to prepare for the largest international pageant in the world and not receiving any of the promised support or prizes valued at $250,000… Olivia went on to wow the 2 billion viewers watching the Miss World television program in over 120 countries… winning for her country the Miss World People’s Choice. After being State Ambassador for South Australia for over 2 years now, Olivia was delighted to win the international title. “Such a great honour to win for my country and a big step towards my ultimate goal… to one day work as an Ambassador for the United Nations”, she said. “Miss World is about beauty with purpose, over 80% of the contestants have tertiary qualifications”, as proven by Olivia who acquired her Masters Degree with the University of Adelaide, previously won a scholarship and studied with the Swiss Hotel Association and Le Cordon Bleu, as well as a Diploma in Linguistics; speaking German fluently. Apart from meeting with top model agencies in London, New York and Los Angeles, Olivia was chosen as the International Ambassador for South Australia – Australia’s representative for Sauchin04 in China for 3.5 weeks, working with the media to promote Australian food, wine and tourism. Olivia’s official duties overseas also included visiting the Australian Embassy in Los Angeles, Tokyo and Shanghai, as well as speaking with Variety Ambassadors in the United States. Highlights of Olivia’s Miss World Australia International Tour included being invited to the Van Hallen Concert in Hollywood, Giants Baseball Game in San Francisco (photo), Alcatraz, Nappa Valley – meeting famous chef Thomas Keller at the French Laundry, ‘Seinfeld’ diner in NYC, ‘O’ concert in Las Vegas, Lion King Musical in London, China White – top club in London where Olivia met with Miss New Zealand (photo), the famous Monte Carlo Beach Club where Beyonce was also enjoying the sun (photo), Elton John Concert in Shanghai, Formula 1 Grand Prix – China, shoot with top Asia ‘Time’ magazine photographer, attended the Australia Ball in Shanghai and waltzing with Zeus – the lead actor [and Melbournite] from ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ to the Vegemite Sandwich by Men at Work (photo). Olivia has been very busy over the past 12 months, assisting numerous charities and community groups – so much so that Olivia was chosen as the 2004 Variety The Children’s Charity Ambassador. Her work also included television and modelling work in Australia as well as overseas, which Olivia will continue with now that her reign as Miss World Australia has finished. Olivia is very passionate to keep on with her charity work as well as her career as a professional speaker – motivating others she explains, “Through education, understanding and combining our efforts – to make a positive difference in the world”.
