Korowal is a small school

WHAT DO OUR GRADUATES DO?

I am often asked, especially by prospective parents, what our graduates do.  When I read this recent article in the Drum, I was delighted to see that it was written by one of our ex students, Eamon Waterford.  Eamon was a K to 12 student at Korowal, who went on to UNSW and now works as the Policy and Advocacy Director of Youth Action, the peak body for youth affairs in NSW.
