In 1976, Braemar College commenced with 202 students and 15 staff. 40 years on, the College has 820 students and over 120 staff.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the College, a community sourced sculpture was created. The sculpture consists of 840 coloured blocks. The blocks from the Middle School students are printed in plastic. The blocks from the Senior School students, staff and Board Members have a printed plastic fascia and are connected to a piece of timber which once formed part of a Braemar House walkway.
The face of each block has either a printed image or the initials of students and staff. Each block is printed in House colours, with some staff and Board Members being printed in white.
The overall sculpture is in two halves, allowing it to be split and placed on the two campuses in the future and then symbolically re-joined when whole-of-College events occur.
The final block is inscribed with a message about the 40 year celebration. This was placed by Mr Graham Farley, the first Headmaster of Braemar College, on Celebration Night 2016. The block was delivered to Mr Farley by programmed Lego robots, and accompanied by a musical piece composed by Aimee Noordhoorn, a Year 11 student.
On Sunday 20 November, a group of Year 12 students and staff will set off on the 2016 Braemar College Sri Lanka Community Adventure.

BRAEMAR COLLEGE NEPAL
This adventure has been crafted using our Travel, Give, Grow philosophy and gives the students from Braemar College a unique hands on opportunity to help a remote community in need in Nepal.
Nepal 2015 trip
Our itinerary provides an opportunity to trek to the Base Camp of the highest mountain in the world for uninterrupted views of Mt Everest. We trek the more remote trails along the far side of the Khumbu valley, witnessing Sir Edmund Hillarys legacy along the way. We savour the high mountain views from our selected permanent campsites located away from the main trails, in the company of our Sherpa guides, whose knowledge and passion for trekking in the Khumbu add a further dimension to this memorable trek.
This is a great hands on opportunity to give something back to a remote community in need as well as experiencing the adventure of a lifetime.

RSVP’s to attend the information evening are not required.
