Centenary Celebrations

It has been a momentous week in the College’s history as we marked 100 years since the official opening of The Scots College.  Scots was first established in 1919, just one year after the opening of the Presbyterian Girls College (PGC).

Past students rallied together to honour the College at various events which began last Friday with a special luncheon at the Queensland Club in Brisbane.  Over the weekend, the College hosted the Past Students Association Reunion celebrations which comprised a lunch on Pipers Knoll, College tours at both the Oxenham and Locke Street campuses and then a dinner in the dining hall with past students who graduated anywhere from five to sixty years ago.

A chapel service followed on Sunday to honour the 100th birthday of Scots which was once again well attended by students past and present.

On Monday the College hosted a special commemorative Centenary Assembly attracting past students and community members to our College to honour the special centennial milestone.  Our guest speaker and past student, His Honour Judge Sandy Horneman-Wren SC accurately depicted what it means to be part of SCOTS PGC and spoke of memories which resonated with all who were in attendance.

Today, our Junior School hosted their own special assembly and invited our longest serving current teacher, Mr Keevers for a special history lesson on Scots College.

The week has provided our community with moments to reflect and remember what it means to be part of such a special place which is proud of its rich 100-year history.
