Founders Day 2019 - Awarding of the Robert Gray Medal

Principal Guy Pearson reports: "Last Friday we marked our Founders Day with a special ceremony in the Memorial Chapel. On this occasion we awarded the very first Robert Gray Medal’s to two of our most distinguished Old Boys, Dr Robert Frater and Mr Raymond Ackerman. The Bishop Gray Medal is the most prestigious and only award which the school can bestow on an OD who has made a significant and exceptional contribution in his field of endeavour, or to society in general. The citations (click here) were read by our Headboy William Linley and Deputy Head, Murray Gordon."
