When Vincent Stanton founded the College in 1851 his primary aim was to provide a place of Christian learning for boys of Chinese heritage. The scripture reading highlights the boy Jesus questioning the temple's teachers while also learning from them โ€“ a parallel that resonates with the interactive learning experiences of our students at the College every day.

We hope to see you at the service and celebrate with you this significant milestone in our Collegeโ€™s history.
