Spotlight On: James Tierney

A day boy at King’s for thirteen years, James served the School as House Captain, School Monitor and Captain of Cross Country. He proved enormously effective in fulfilling all his leadership responsibilities faithfully and competently.

As a gifted athlete, he represented the School in Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics and was selected for the NSW CIS and AAGPS Cross Country teams. His talent and efforts were acknowledged with Cross Country Honour Colours, Athletics Full Colours and Swimming Full Colours.

“My parents chose King’s because they wanted me to have the opportunity to develop leadership skills while maintaining academic and co-curricular activities. King’s fostered an environment where the challenges I faced helped me to grow as an individual and achieve my best.”

James extended his leadership skills to the Cadet Corps, where he held the position of Cadet Under Officer. He also received a Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.

“King’s fosters an environment where growing and striving to be your best is possible. You are consistently thrust into challenging circumstances that force you to grow as an individual so that you can achieve your best.”  

James believes the most important lesson he learnt at King’s is to take advantage of the opportunities on offer because you never know how they could be of benefit in the future.

“To be a Kingsman is to uphold your own personal morals and also the School’s motto, ‘Bravely and Faithfully’. We endeavour to be role models and help those around us so that we can all become better individuals.”

He will continue to strive to be his best self.

“At King’s, we are encouraged to develop into strong men and I’m excited to explore what it means to be a man in the wider world.”
