Pelican : June 2010
12 Seven Super 14s In early May, seven of our Old Boys simultaneously ran out onto the feld at Canberra Stadium to compete in a Super 14 game. Anthony Faingaa (Class of 2004), Saia Faingaa (Class of 2004), and Jack Kennedy (Class of 2004) represented the Queensland Reds against Colby Faingaa (Class of 2008), Robert Coleman (Class of 2009), Matt Giteau (Class of 2000), and Tyrone Smith (Class of 2001) for the ACT Brumbies. Super 14 rugby archives would suggest that this is a competition record and a feat that both the players involved, their families and our College are very proud of. An International Success In the footsteps of his father, Gregory Morrison, 4 brothers, and uncles, Patrick and Francis, James Morrison (Class of ’97), began Year 4 at St Edmund’s College in 1989. After graduating from Year 12 James entered the University of Sydney and completed degrees in Economics and Law. Both degrees were completed with First Class Honours. Working as a disputes solicitor for an international law frm in 2004 placed James in a solid position to win a scholarship to conduct post- graduate study abroad. Thus, in 2005, James moved to Stockholm, Sweden, where he completed a Masters in International Commercial Arbitration Law (graduating AB cum laude approbatur). Following his academic success, James was appointed as a Counsel at the International Court of Arbitration in Paris and was placed in charge of the Asia-Pacifc Division. For almost three years James administered some of the most important commercial disputes in the world. In 2009, James returned to private practice, and moved to Seoul, Korea, where he has been working at one of the largest Korean law frms and represents Korean and international clients in cross-border dispute resolution and arbitration. James has noted that his success is “largely thanks to St Eddie’s, the Christian Brothers, my teachers, my school mates and my family…. I have a great career which has enabled me to live and travel in some amazing parts of the world, meet and work with some world famous companies and people and learn a number of different languages.” A special “thumbs up” was also offered to Anne Aldis. Her “French classes [were] particularly useful!!” Alumni news Faingaa brothers (l to r) Anthony (Class of 2004) Colby (Class of 2008) and Saia (Class of 2004). Photo Courtesy The Canberra Times.
