Our History

The Foundation was established in 1984 for charitable purposes, through the provision of financial support and related activities to help advance the School and assist the School Council to preserve, develop and improve the standard, facilities and wellbeing of the School.

The inaugural Board of the Foundation comprised of Grahme Dixon (Chairman), Ruth Tideman (School Principal), John Calvert-Jones, Claude Ullin, Evelyn Danos and Ian Godwin.


Today the Foundation plays an increasingly integral role in supporting Lauriston’s future as one of the leading schools both within Australia and internationally. The operation of the Foundation within the Advancement Office at Lauriston is funded by the school.
