Building on Strong Foundations Inspirations Campaign – Term 1

Term 1 may have come to a close for 2017 but the Building on Strong Foundations Inspirations campaign is only ramping up. Students were able to read quotes and personal mottos of ten Old Boys of the College from their posters as well as learn about them from the morning notices each week. The campaign also brought Old Boys and their families back to the College to not only view their posters but to reminisce on their time as students.

For those unable to make it during the year, the Old Boys and their quotes from Term 1 are included below:
