Building on Strong Foundations Inspirations Campaign – Term 2

Term 3 has now commenced and the Building on Strong Foundations Inspirations campaign has seen a total of 19 Old Boy posters and quotes throughout the campus. The College has also had the pleasure of a number of Old Boys and their families returning to the College to view their posters. 

The Old Boys and their quotes from Term 2 are included below:
