Terry Gill (Class of 1957)

When he was 19 years of age, Terry got the acting bug from doing the Malvern Little Theatre version of The Diary of Anne Frank, which made him decide to follow his career of acting.

During the 1970s Terry appeared constantly on TV and film, with famous roles in I Can Jump Puddles, Bluey and Bellbird. In the late 1970s and 1980s he had recurring roles in Prisoner Cell Block H and Flying Doctors, but one of his most famous roles was in the movie, Crocodile Dundee, where he got knocked out by Mick Dundee and shot at by a kangaroo, however he will be remembered forever as Santa in Carols by Candlelight, a role which he played for 27 years.

Stuart Kollmorgen OAM (Class of 1986)

In 2019, Stuart was awarded an Order of Australia Medal for service to the LGBTI community and sporting organisations and also for his pro bono legal work.

As a student during the 1980s there were few gay role models, and the topic was taboo apart from the ‘grim reaper’ campaign against the AIDS pandemic, newspaper scandals and tragic endings to Hollywood films. Stuart turned this into a challenge to be defeated.

Whilst working as a solicitor in Melbourne for 17 years as a partner of a global firm, Stuart also spent his spare time volunteering and taking board roles in LGBTI organisations. He leveraged his positions to lead and provide pro bono legal advice to community organisations, culminating in his leadership of the Victorian Pride Centre, which will be the biggest purpose-built pride centre in the world – offering support to the Victorian and Australian LGBTI community and beyond into the Asia-Pacific region.
