Without strong support from the School community, Launceston Grammar would not have the financial capacity to complete many projects that enhance our educational environment and student learning outcomes. Funds raised from members of our community are directed towards priorities aimed at ensuring the viability of Launceston Grammar into the future.
Community Hub Project
For 170 years, Launceston Grammar School has been making its unique and valuable contribution to independent education in northern Tasmania.
Today, as we look ahead five years short of our 175th anniversary, we’re planning a major project to commemorate this remarkable milestone.
The Community Hub with its appealing and integrated spaces, will reconnect old and young members of the Grammar family. Set in the heart of the school, the Community Hub will be a multi-use, light-filled, contemporary student learning spaces, incorporating Café 175 and The Space.
The Space will be a dynamic facility to showcase historical assets from the DV Gunn Archives.
The Board is now asking for your support to realise the next vision – the Launceston Grammar Community Hub, a vital initiative to celebrate another landmark in the history of Australia’s longest continually-operating school.
MICHAEL BENNETT, Chair
For 170 years, Launceston Church Grammar School has led the way in educating Launceston’s young people.
In 2016, Launceston Grammar asks members of its community to give the gift of learning, by partnering with us to change a life, and our community, for the better.
Launceston Grammar embraces diversity, insists on inclusiveness and acknowledges achievement. Our Scholarships Programme, and the generosity of our community in supporting it, enables us to pursue our values.
Scholarships are the key to making the opportunity to experience a Launceston Grammar education to many deserving students and they are a source of pride and inspiration to those who receive them.
“Being awarded the Brock Scholarship and having the opportunity to attend Launceston Grammar has opened the door to academic success and career possibilities I never imagined. At Launceston Grammar, everyone is given the chance to be a leader. Our School is a community with teachers and staff who are supportive and put students first. At Remembrance Day last year, I was lucky enough to meet the relatives of the Brock family when they visited the School to honour the history of the Scholarship.”

Ways of Giving
Each year, the School seeks support for key fundraising priorities from its community. In the past, teaching and learning spaces have been transformed and countless students have also been given an opportunity to learn and grow through scholarships, thanks to the generosity of our donors.
In 2016, we require continued support from our School community to fund these vital initiatives.
Launceston Grammar enables those willing to make a monthly or quarterly gift to do so.
Every gift, at every level, makes a difference to our students. Investment in our School through substantial gifts, however, enables us to direct resources to where they can make the greatest impact.
In addition to providing for your loved ones, please consider making a gift to Launceston Grammar through your will.

From the HeadmasterLaunceston Church Grammar School celebrates a deep and ongoing connection with its community. Since its inception, the School has thrived and grown, in no small part, due to the generosity of the people who support it; the culture of philanthropy at Launceston Grammar is alive and well. For its part, the School takes seriously its commitment to educating young people with a strong focus on equity and diversity. Since it was founded in 1846, our School has opened its doors to many who would not otherwise have enjoyed the benefit of a Launceston Grammar education.
To meet the challenges of providing a quality education in a contemporary context, the School must grow and diversify its income streams. Tuition fees alone do not allow for the ever increasing costs associated with providing a world-class education. To maintain the competitiveness of our great School, and to build on the strong and worthy traditions that have guided it until now, we seek philanthropic support from our community”.
