2017 Summer Griffin

In the Summer 2017 edition of our Griffin magazine, we speak with past student David E Charles (Class of 1964), leading Golden Era Television Director, turned Federal Politician.

Working alongside entertainment industry icons, Graham Kennedy and Tony Charlton, David flourished under the pressure of the behind-the-scenes action that brought the Golden Era to households around the country.

Motivated to reach further and fulfil his inherent passion for politics, David branched off from his directing career on 18 October, 1980, when he became the first past pupil to enter Federal Politics as Member for Isaacs.

In an insightful and honest interview, David shares how leaps of faith in his life have proved to generate some of his greatest achievements, and how staying true to the Salesian ethos of love and Christianity remain two of the most important ingredients to achieving success.
