Where are they now...

Focusing on a future in Biomedical Science​

2017 graduate, Fraser Morris, is about to complete his Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Accelerated) with a major in Biomedical Science and minors in Clinical Embryology, Medical Microbiology and Anatomy, at the University of the Sunshine Coast. This two-year high intensive course required him to complete five subjects per semester and placement during the study break. He will then complete a Masters by Research focusing on blood transfusions in patients undergoing elective major abdominal surgery in Sweden. ​

2023 graduate Josh Shanahan has secured a 4 year Cross Country & Track Full Scholarship in Commerce Texas, starting in the Fall 2024. He is looking forward to the USA Collegiate Student/Athlete environment and will be studying Exercise Science.
It is a fitting reward for Josh with a sustained effort over a long period of time. Josh has represented STCC on man​y occasions at District, Regional, State and National level.

From one viral song to an invitation at Coachella

St Teresa's 2016 graduates, Eamon Sandwith, Matt Boggis and Josh Price loved music throughout high school. After completing Year 12 they continued with their school band named "The Chats," practicing in a garage in Verrierdale and they began making their own film clips. In late 2017, their lives changed when their song "Smoko" went viral. They struck a chord in the Australian music scene that has continued to embrace these young men. Their "Smoko" video has now has over 14 million views. 

​Recently they opened a concert in Melbourne for Iggy Pop to rave reviews, and they've been interviewed on MTV and several radio stations. Their tour schedule is fully booked as they travel around A​ustralia and overseas. They have already toured the UK and Europe and later this year head back to Europe and the US. The boys have signed a 2-year contract with Universal Music and have also started their own record label, Bargain Bin Records. In 2021, they were all set to perform at Coachella until COVID-19 intervened. Whilst their music may not be everyone's cup of tea, they have certainly made an impact, and they continue to Dare the Dream. ​
