Founders' Day

Today is a special day for Hume Anglican Grammar as we celebrate Founders' Day. 

It is a day where we honour and acknowledge the incredible group of people whose vision and hard work brought our school to life. We take this opportunity to reflect on our past, appreciate the present, and look forward to the future.

Our Mt Ridley campus came together for a P-12 assembly, where the Primary Choir, Secondary bands and dancers gave performances. In addition, we were fortunate to have an exceptional guest speaker address the school. Hume Anglican Grammar’s own Grammarian, Manveer Singh, who graduated in 2016, reflected on his time at Hume and his achievements.

Our Donnybrook and Kalkallo campuses gathered for a special assembly with performances from the Choir, and our own Ms Catherine Yap provided a heartfelt reflection on her time at Hume as she enters her 10th year of teaching. Following the assembly, students gathered on the soccer pitch for a drone photo, showcasing the tremendous growth in both our Donnybrook and Kalkallo campuses.

Many exciting activities were held across the school to celebrate Founders' Day. Secondary students cooked up a storm with a student-led BBQ, while the Sports Centre hosted a lunchtime concert for all, and the Primary school put on an impressive talent show leaving their peers in awe. The students from Mt Ridley Primary had a go at the Dunk Tank and staff members took turns getting dunked. Even the Principal, Mr Bill Sweeney, took to the tank seat and was dunked seven times to the delight of the Year 2 students who had perfected their aim. A day filled with laughter and unforgettable moments.

All the excitement culminated in a sweet treat for all staff and students as cupcakes were shared. The students' participation in the Founders’ Day activities serves as a testament to our school's continued success. We are grateful for the opportunity to mark this founding date and celebrate the achievements of our Founders.

As we move forward, we are confident that the next 16 years will be as exciting and successful as the past. We wish Hume Anglican Grammar a very happy birthday and look forward to many more years of shaping young minds and creating future leaders.
