Griffith U’s relatable role models

Real-world heroes are something to be  

GU’s wants us to know that Kate Miller- Heidke, a graduate of its Queensland Conservatorium of Music, is in the finals of the Eurovision Song Contest. The university is also keen to claim as its own students Clare Polkinghorne and Hayley Raso, and alumni Tameka Yallop and Elise Kellond-Knight, who are all in Australia’s FIFA Women’s World Cup squad.

Good lord, a university associating itself with students who do things that actually interest young people – makes a change from  elitist-uni campaigns featuring grads who want to secretary general of the UN before they are 25.
