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:

‘The true mark of any of the players I have played with and against is – not how you are going when you are winning, it’s when your back is against the wall
and how you are going when you are losing.’

‘Attitude…We have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day… Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it…We are in charge of our attitudes’
