Hamish exhibits an active interest in a diverse range of activities, including filmmaking. Whilst in Year 9, Hamish won an Empire Theatres Foundation Youth Bursary, enabling him to complete an acting course. Inspired, he became involved in the Toowoomba Grammar School Acting Academy, school productions and has particularly enjoyed scriptwriting and film and play production.
One may not imagine a boy from the bush would be involved in triathlons but Hamish has represented the Darling Downs in the State Championships. He has also been active in community service activities, including with the Toowoomba East State School, Toowoomba West Special School, the School’s Interact Club, Legacy, the 40 Hour Famine, and the Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camp for children with disabilities.
