Kate Hudson-James of Toowoomba’s St Saviour’s College is an active achiever who is on the Student Representative Council, secretary of the Interact Club and a member of the junior debating team as well as participating in the school choir.

Kate Hudson-James is an academic and artistic star, finishing in the top one per cent of the 2016/17 ICAS English test.

The lingual streak continued when Kate was awarded a highly commended at the Ipswich Poetry Competition.

She was presented with a Distinction at the 2016 Big Science Competition, and a High Distinction in the following year. 

Kate was granted the Spirit of Catholic Education Bursary last year, a $600 scholarship gifted by Father Ray Crowley over the course of four years to assist in cultural pursuits.

Looking towards the future, Kate sees herself facilitating youth arts programs, and even starting her own theatre company, to indulge her love for the theatre.

“I am very passionate about theatre and drama. I’ve been attending drama classes at the Empire Theatre for more than four years.”

Kate has written two shows of her own, Chalk and Child(ish), and has been a member of the Empire Theatre drama class since Year 8.

She was even the youngest member to have ever been accepted into the junior IMPACT ensemble, involved in writing, producing and acting in the troupe.

Although Kate is already well travelled for her age, having trekked through England, Japan, most of Europe, and Dubai, she hopes to one day travel the world.
