Annual Appeal 2017: Memorial Hall Refurbishment

In 1947 the Old Scotch Collegians began fundraising to build the current Memorial Hall to commemorate the staff and students who lost their lives in World War II.

We are currently transforming Memorial Hall into a contemporary space, providing a modern lecture theatre and performing arts facility for both teaching and performances. The refurbishment will include upgrades to seating, lighting, sound and projection systems.

At the same time, we will maintain the original commemorative aspect with part of the Memorial Hall becoming the primary display area where our past soldiers, sailors and airmen can be honoured and remembered. It is our intention to dedicate the foyer, upstairs area and a portion of the main hall as our principal display areas to house some of the College's history and heritage. This will vastly increase and improve our capacity for displays, stories and memorabilia.

If you would like to join us in honouring our past whilst paving the way for a creative future, please support this important project for all of our students.
