Brooksbank Library Naming Ceremony 

As a part of the School’s ongoing centennial celebrations, we were delighted on Wednesday 11th May 2022 that we could finally gather to officially name the Senior School Library after the school founder, The Reverend Hubert Albert Brooksbank.

We were honoured to host ten members of the Brooksbank family to officially name the library, which was declared the Brooksbank Library by the Chair of School Council, Dr Nikita Weickhardt.  Dr Mary Brooksbank AM responded on behalf of her family and was able to share wonderful anecdotes about Rev Brooksbank.

The ceremony was attended by members of School Council, Life Governors, staff and students. A beautiful rendition of the newly commissioned School Anthem was performed by a choir of fourteen students, which was an enchanting way to mark the occasion.

In being named the Brooksbank Library we hope that it continues to create opportunities to support learning and literacy whilst being a place of reflection and contemplation.

Reunions are back!

We were thrilled at long last to be able to host six reunions on Friday 13th May 2022.

The Classes of 2000, 2001, 2002 celebrated their 20-year reunions and the Classes of 2010, 2011, 2012 celebrated their 10-year reunions.

The school was abuzz with different locations around the school being utilized to host these milestone gatherings. Joy and laughter was abound as we were finally able to meet and celebrate in person. It was wonderful to see so many former staff members join these year levels to celebrate and catch up on the past 10 and 20 years. It was also great to see so many current staff join in the fun to see what their past students are now doing.
