GPS Association: Chairman's Message 2018

“As Chairman of the Great Public Schools’ Association of Queensland in 2018, I have had the honour of leading the Association in this special Centenary year.

As we have reflected on 100 years as an Association, we have celebrated the shared values of dedication, courage, respect, fair play and the pursuit of excellence that have created a unifying bond and an enduring spirit of fellowship between our nine diverse GPS member schools.

I encourage you to reflect on your own GPS connection as we celebrate this special Centenary year. I also encourage you to look ahead with us as GPS develops and evolves into the next 100 years.”

Mr Peter Fullagar, College Principal, St Joseph’s Nudgee College and GPS Association Chairman 2018
