170th Anniversary Thanksgiving Service

In celebration of the 170th Anniversary of the founding of our school, you are cordially invited to attend our 170th Anniversary Thanksgiving Service on Friday, April 21st at St. John’s Cathedral at 6.30pm.

The theme for the service ‘Why were you searching for me?” He asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?’ (Luke 2:49) is a fitting one for this grand occasion. When Vincent Stanton founded the College in 1851 his initial aim was to provide a place of Christian learning for boys of Chinese heritage. In the scripture reading it is here that we find the boy Jesus questioning the teachers of the temple as well as learning from them – a parallel imagery of our boys on a daily basis here at the College.
