Virtual Museum - a collection of GPS treasures

The artefacts, items of interest, donations and bequests collected over the last one hundred years reflect the GPS Association’s rich history in our nine member schools across South East Queensland. This collection of items from the past may not have seemed extraordinary at the time, but today they hold a special place in our hearts because they serve to remind us of the spirit fellowship, competition and creativity that has enriched the GPS community of students past and present, parents, staff and friends for so long.
