Thomas says it was an incredible experience to win the competition, with the prize to fly an Old Collegian home from anywhere in the world to attend Centenary Gala Weekend.
“It was the first time I had seen my friends and teachers since I left StAC, and I hadn’t seen my family in a year, including my brother Luke who entered me in the draw as a birthday present. It will be a difficult gift to top and one I might not ever live up to!”
Thomas says the Gala Dinner was a major highlight and reminded him of why he enjoyed school so much. “It was a winning combination of performance, cuisine and great people.”
After a whirlwind week of ‘non-stop catch-ups and laughs’, Thomas was back on the plane to London.
