Teacher Kieran Nolan said the school was excited about the possibility of a mentors program between students and the HCash team.
“The students were able to see how a successful Australian blockchain company works, connecting industry and education,” he said.

Councillor Maria Sampey seemed to put aside her recent criticism of the Greater Dandenong Chamber of Commerce to attend the business group’s awards night at Atura Hotel on Wednesday 22 November.

Hilton Manufacturing’s Todd Hartley declared he’d come in last place, with about 42 years.
Lifestyle Brands International’s Uri Palti made a late bid for the lead, declaring: “We’ve been here since 1788 … ”

The list said revenue was at $11.59 million and had grown by 13.4 per cent.
RJ now has 10 offices, nine partners and 64 other staff.
