Celebrate 150

Join the Celebration!


We’re looking ahead to St George’s 150th Anniversary in 2019 and are inviting you to help us celebrate!

These 150 years are a major achievement, possible only through the generations of support given by our Georgian Community. We’ve come a long way since 1869 and we’re proud of our progress over the years, so there is much to celebrate.

Looking to our future, we plan to mark this special anniversary with an exciting new architectural development for the College. It’s a development that will transform our current activity facilities and leave a lasting legacy.


About Us

The Development Office was established in 2003 and is currently located in the White House at the College....

What is Development?

'Development is not a synonym for Fundraising' it is a process of creating and enhancing relationships with supporters, it builds their interest in our mission, develops a passion in them for our mission and a commitment to the school's future, encouraging them to make a gift without having to ask and maintaining the relationship so that they will continue to give, in whichever manner that may be. Fundraising is a component of the Development process....

Development Office mission statement:

Re-uniting the Georgian Family with each other and the School in order to strengthen our community and enhance the educational provision for the future through charitable giving....
