Building on Strong Foundations Inspirations Campaign – Term 3

The final term is here and the Building on Strong Foundations Inspirations campaign has gone from strength to strength. It has been the College’s pleasure to have Old Boys and their families come into the College to view their posters. 

The Old Boys and their quotes from Term 3 are included below:

‘Press on – Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone is important.’ –  Calvin Coolidge
