  • BGS150 History Book Launch
    Saturday, 02 March 2019
    5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

    ​On the sesquicentenary of the first students commencing at BGS, it is with great pleasure that we invite our community to attend the launch of Light Dark Blue: 150 Years of Learning and Leadership at Brisbane Grammar School.

    The theme for our 150th anniversary was Celebrating Our Community, and throughout 2018 it was wonderful to attend commemorative events that brought community members together all over the world. From the major BGS150 events including the Gala Dinner, a royal visit and Sports Lunch, to reunions around Australia and overseas, the theme of community was strong. It is clear Brisbane Grammar School means so much to so many different people.

    Light Dark Blue highlights BGS' rich history and the contribution our community has made to industry, professions and people. Drawing on personal stories and extensive scholarly research, the book explores and celebrates the School's distinctive place in Queensland’s educational landscape, and considers the impact of political, social and economic change during the School’s 150 years.

    We encourage you to join us as we launch this special history book, and celebrate our community and 150 years of Brisbane Grammar School.
