NICHOLAS FARR-JONES – CLASS OF 2019

Nicholas graduated from MAG in 2019. After an arduous application process throughout 2019, Nicholas was accepted into the Australian Defence Force Army Gap Year program in early 2020, which gives young Australians the chance to experience an exciting and rewarding 12-month role in the army.

After spending 12 months undertaking training in Kapooka (Wagga Wagga), Singleton and finally Townsville, Nicholas decided to stay on in the army and is now based in Townsville. Initially with the rifle company, he undertook a Signallers course and is now in Support Company, Sig Platoon.

LACHIE SCHULTZ

Lachie Schultz began his educational journey at 91ֿ Grammar in 2009 as a Year 6 student. Building upon the very positive work experience he completed during Year 10, Lachie decided to leave school at the end of that year and take up a plumbing apprenticeship. He finished the apprenticeship attaining a Cert III in plumbing. Lachie wanted to expand upon the foundational skills he’d learned, and returned to TAFE to do a Cert IV unit, giving him the skills to be able to run and manage a plumbing business.

Throughout his apprenticeship, Lachie never lost his passion for AFL football, playing for the Bendigo Pioneers and then Williamstown. At the end of his apprenticeship, Lachie was fortunate enough to be drafted to the Fremantle Dockers. After five years playing for the Fremantle Dockers, Lachie was started a new chapter at the Collingwood Football Club in 2024. ‘Being drafted is a major life highlight for me, and then this year I was lucky enough to play in my first finals campaign.’

JESSIE BURGESS – CLASS OF 2012

Jessie Burgess, formerly Jessie Naughton, attended 91ֿ Grammar from 2010 to 2012, completing Years 10 through 12. Following her graduation from MAG, Jessie pursued higher education at RMIT University in Melbourne, where she completed a degree in Chiropractic. Subsequently, she and her now-husband, Christian, a fellow 91ֿ Grammar alumnus, relocated to Yeppoon, Queensland. 

Currently, Jessie is employed as a Chiropractor at Total Health Chiropractic and is the owner of three additional Chiropractic clinics. Alongside her Chiropractic ventures, Jessie and Christian also own two Pilates studios in Queensland, adding to their already busy schedule.

COURTNEY LANGENBACHER – CLASS OF 2012

After graduating from 91ֿ Grammar in 2012, Courtney Langenbacher was not immediately clear on what career path she wanted to pursue. In the meantime, she accepted a job at Subway in Echuca where she continued to work for six years.

After relocating to Leeton, NSW, Courtney commenced a Cert IV Business Administration traineeship with the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) through Tocal College. Courtney thrived in this learning environment and won the 2022 Trainee of the Year for TAFE NSW. Upon completing the traineeship, she was immediately recruited as a Skills Training Officer at DPI, Tocal College; and has now moved into the role of Skills Training Coordinator. In this role, Courtney organises the schedule of agricultural courses offered by the College and works with key stakeholders to deliver the training they require for their staff.

LUKA MULLER – CLASS OF 2011

Luka Muller embarked on his journey at 91ֿ Grammar as a Year 7 student in 2006 and graduated in 2011. Following his completion of Year 12, he enrolled in a Bachelor of Arts at Latrobe University. However, after the first semester, he found himself uncertain about its direction and chose to defer before ultimately withdrawing from the course.

Luka now serves as a Triple J co-host on weekend afternoons and thrives as a stand-up comedian and freelance writer. Initially uncertain about his career path after school, he navigated a long and tumultuous road to his current endeavours, appreciating the obstacles along the way that enriched his journey.

Reflecting on his experiences, Luka acknowledges the difficult and lonely nature of pursuing stand up comedy. However, he takes pride in his perseverance and the exciting life he has created, full of travel, weird and cool stuff! As we interviewed Luka, he was sitting at Melbourne Airport getting ready to board a flight to Tasmania, to perform at Party In The Paddock festival. “I have to pinch myself sometimes”, he said.

REBECCA LOCKE – CLASS OF 2011

Since graduating from MAG in 2011, Rebecca Locke (nee Wright) has led a life less ordinary! Rebecca decided to follow her passion for golf, and after taking a gap year to focus on training and competing in golf tournaments around Australia, she set out to pursue her dream of combining golf and university in the USA. For four years, Rebecca juggled academic and athletic commitments; she was lucky enough to travel to tournaments all around the USA with her teammates. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering Technology and was awarded Scholar Athletic of the Year to top it off.

Following graduation, Rebecca had to make the tough decision between pursuing an athletic or academic career. After receiving a job offer in the land development department for a primary company in New York, she decided upon a career in civil engineering. Soon afterward, Rebecca met her now-husband, Rob, who was an Officer in the US Marine Corps. The couple relocated back to Australia once Rob had completed his military service, and Rebecca has taken up work in a new field – mathematics.
