Our 120 Anniversary Picnic Day

Despite inclement weather, our Lauriston community came out in force on Sunday 21 March to celebrate 120 years of girls' education.

Students, their families, staff and alumnae enjoyed old-fashioned games, took a trip down memory lane thanks to an impressive Archives display, sang along with the musical performances, including the newly formed Old Lauristonians’ choir, were enthralled by the student performance of Picnic at Hanging Rock and ate WAY too much fairy floss and ice-cream! 

The tours of the Lauriston Arts Association (LAA) Student Art Acquisition Prize were a hit. The LAA has played a crucial role in recognising our rich and diverse visual arts program and the wonderful artists the School has produced. The art exhibition celebrated 30 years of VCE and IB student art acquisitions.

Principal Susan Just announced her intention to be first down the Adventure Playground slippery slide once work on our new unified Junior School and Sports, Health and Wellbeing Centre is complete at the end of Term 4, 2022.

Susan also unveiled the maquette for Jumping for Joy, a new sculpture by Old Lauristonian Heather Ellis, which has been commissioned to mark our 120th anniversary and funded generously by members of our community. The full-size sculpture will be installed during the school holidays under the boughs of the Moreton Bay fig. 

The day was a wonderful affirmation of the breadth and depth of our wonderful Lauriston community.
