In celebrating 150 years as an institution, we can take pride in the remarkable successes of the Brisbane Grammar School community. It is a diverse community that starts with current students and includes Old Boys, current and past parents, current and past staff, and friends of the School. It is also a global community that extends far beyond the school gates.
As well as our celebrations, I think this is an opportunity to consider our potential and think about extending the School's journey into the next 150 years.
Compatible with our origins, it is our mission to educate all-rounded, motivated students who embody our school community and Brisbane's diversity. Our vision is to grow our Bursary Fund to $20 million by 2020. This will enable BGS to increase our provision of bursaries for students in financial need, now and into the future.
I encourage you – as part of the BGS community – to reflect on your connection with the School and share your stories with us. Thank you to each of you who make up our community. Together you make Brisbane Grammar School what it is today.
