Historical School Magazines

​​​​The Brisbane Grammar School Magazine provides a valuable written and pictorial record of school life from 1898 to the present.

The first 22 years of the BGS magazine from 1898 to 1920 have been digitised. This period was momentous in the School’s history, reflected in the writings and photos about the Boer War and First World War.

Other topics vary from events, such as the opening of the new Science wing in 1912, to staff news and the academic and sporting achievements of students. More magazines will be digitised in the coming years.

Once you have opened the PDF file, you can click on your Adobe Reader's search icon to search for specific text. If this does not appear automatically, hit Control+F and that should bring up a search box.
