For those who know Sam, I’m sure his choice of vocation comes as no surprise. Over his five years at St Peters, Sam was an integral member of the music and arts scene, attaining many awards in the process.

“My art teacher, Ms Seidel, was an incredible support, always helping me and pushing me in the art direction,” Sam explains. He goes on to illustrate that it wasn’t until he came to St Peters and participated productions and designing props and sets, that he really understood what he wanted to pursue post-Senior school. “While the IB is academic, my passion is really in the Arts. I’m very happy the IB course allowed me to still pursue my passion whilst concentrating on my academics.”

Many of you will also be aware Sam’s father is a resident St Peters Maths teacher Michael Cujes, and he couldn’t be prouder of his son.

“It’s a big task undertaking the IB. But Sam realised he was ready for the challenge and set his mind to it,” Michael says. “It’s a nice bonus when you get the reward on top.”

Sam is currently enrolled in a Bachelor of Fine Arts at QUT and is majoring in Technical Production. Whilst he has danced and played piano for many years, it was VAPar, and other St Peters productions, that really fostered his interest in the arts and for a career in stage management.

This humble young man has only ventured overseas once in his life however, his ambition is to work with the Royal Ballet in London. After maintaining excellent grades whilst studying French and Spanish at St Peters, I’m sure Sam with have no troubles wherever he may travel in the future. As they say...the world is your oyster!
