OUR CHAPEL ORGAN TO SING AGAIN AFTER REFURBISHMENT

OUR CHAPEL ORGAN TO SING AGAIN AFTER REFURBISHMENT

4 days ago

Thanks to the continued generosity of Robert Albert, the College Chapel organ is currently being fully refurbished in time for the annual Carol Service in early December. The St Paul’s College Chapel pipe organ was built in 1971 by the Dutch firm of Flentrop and made possible by the generosity of the late Sir Alexis Albert CMG and his family. Sir Alexis was in College (1926-28), as were his three sons: Robert 1953-56, Ted 1956–58 and Tony 1958-62. The generosity of the Albert family to the College has been enduring, particularly the legacy of Robert Albert who, 20 years ago, assisted the College with a significant donation that allowed the building of the Albert Wing. The Albert Wing was opened and dedicated in September 1999, and continues to house the College office and many student rooms. With the Hon Lloyd Waddy AM, Robert was co-founder of the St Paul’s College

Rawson Cup Soccer

1 year ago

After a round of great Soccer in this year’s Rawson Cup, St Paul’s came in second overall to St Andrew’s. St Paul’s overcame Wesley in the final round to achieve a nail-biting finish at the University Oval Number 2. Below is a description of the match, written by William Evans, and a link to a quick video.   Match Report by Will Evans It was a nail-biting finish at University Oval Number 2 yesterday between St Paul’s College and Wesley College. The game was a close, hard-fought encounter between two strong sides. A very skillful free kick from Adam Prentice was the only thing separating the sides at half time and Paul’s took a 1-0 lead into the sheds. In the second half the Paul’s side defended their lead courageously against a very dangerous Wesley attack who threatened to score number of times. Despite desperate defense from Paul’s, Wesley scored

An historic moment – first students move in to the Ivan Head Building

1 year ago

It was an especially exciting moment in the history of St Paul’s on Friday afternoon when 52 grateful members of the College moved from their old rooms to rooms in the magnificent new Ivan Head Building. Following the builder’s hand-over of the first and second floors of the new building, and rapid work by staff to prepare rooms, these first students to occupy the Ivan Head Building moved in to great excitement. These lucky students are now enjoying brand new state-of-the-art accommodation overlooking the College’s third quadrangle, across from the Graduate House which is now under construction. Their fully-furnished studio rooms feature en suite bathrooms, air conditioning, fridge, and television – accommodation suitable for out-of-semester conference guests, as well as matching the world’s best collegiate accommodation.

1 year ago

  ANZAC Commemorated at College 103 years ago today, young Australian and New Zealand men – just like those who are residents of the College today – went ashore to fight and die for a cause they believed to be just. Three years later, 100 years ago today, in another great battle of World War I, young Australian and New Zealand men fought and died in the second battle for the French village of Villers-Bretonneux. At St Paul’s, at an ANZAC Commemoration Service held in the Chapel today, as we remember all who have fought and died in war, we especially remember the 170 members of the College who enlisted in the First World War, and the 20 who died, and also the members of the College who died in the Boer War, the Second World War and in Vietnam. Lest we forget.   Pic: Daniel Bottrell, representing the students,
