Head of school’s Comment

On Monday at 8:30am we will have the unveiling of the John Colet Statue. Having a representation of the person the school is named after, allows our students to make a connection to his legacy and also the values he inspired in our school.
Our resident international artist, Mr Philip Garrett, is returning to England next week. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Garrett for the fine sculpture he has produced as well as the lessons he has undertaken with our students. He has worked passionately to combine both the historical records of the man, art of the period, as well as factoring in the current context of our school.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Moran family, who originally presented the idea of a sculpture to the school and have been supporting Mr Garrett while in Australia. A project of this magnitude is not possible without the kind donations of both time and money from our parents and friends, for this we thank you.
