Walls of Fame
Over the years, all of us have heard of the great achievements of some of our past students in their lives after school, and there is a significant number who have given great service to the School. The past student body, the All Souls St Gabriels Past Students Association Inc. feels that it is now time to give formal recognition to such achievement and service, In order to do this, the Association has now established the “ASSG Walls of Fame”
First and foremost, we will recognise those past students who have given such great service to the school and shown so much passion and dedication to its well-being. Each and every one of us could quite easily come up with a list of such worthy candidates. Those people selected will then be inducted into our “Walls of Fame” at each annual reunion. It is not envisaged that we come up with a complete list and that is the end of the exercise. Each year we will induct only a small number of candidates.
Secondly, we will also acknowledge select past students who have made outstanding achievements in their chosen field. They may have had little or no contact with the school since leaving, but by virtue of their great achievements, deserve to be recognised, e.g. a great surgeon, someone in the arts or a talented sports person. They then become a page in our “Brag Book”. Then there are others who neither served the school nor achieved outstandingly in their chosen field but gave dedicated service to their community or a worthy cause. These people could also be recognised in this category. This group represents achievement and service other than to the school.
All past students of the school are eligible (when the schools were separate and when they amalgamated). Awards can naturally be made posthumously. Nominees who are not recognised one year can be renominated in following years.
Past students are to nominate candidates and nominations must be received by the due date. Each nomination must be seconded by a past student and be accompanied by significant written support about the nominee.
The Management Committee of the Association, with the power to co-opt, will decide on who will receive the awards and thus their decision is final.
Each year at our Annual Reunion, a select few will be inducted into our “Walls of Fame”, a visual presentation will be unveiled and candidates will be presented with a replica of the wall visual. These “Walls of Fame” will become a centre of attention and an interesting part of our history. They will be located at the School’s museum.
