Annual Fundraising

building our future

Each year, Launceston Grammar seeks the support of our community to enhance the School’s capacity to nurture, challenge and inspire the next generation of learners and leaders.

From our earliest days, Launceston Grammar has provided excellent education and opportunities for students. It is often said that the greatest gift we can give is education; and for over 175 years, the School has sought to nurture graduates ready to contribute to an ever-changing society.

As a School, our people, particularly our students, are why we exist. Every person in our community, from our staff, to our parents and grandparents, past and present, along with our alumni, plays a vital role in contributing to providing excellent education and opportunities to our students.

Introducing Five New Precincts

Most of what has been planned will involve re-purposing and upgrading existing buildings rather than the creation of entirely new facilities, given the existing buildings have so many outstanding characteristics, and can meet future needs through innovative redesign of internal spaces.

Over the next three years two significant projects will be undertaken: the redevelopment of Boarding, and the creation of a new Humanities Precinct utilising the space within the current boys’ Boarding House.

“It will be a profound experience to see the building where I spent my school years transform into innovative learning spaces that also honour our heritage.”

Acting Head of Senior Campus, Adrian Finch

Restore and Revitalise our Senior Campus

Help us restore, revitalise and renew our historic buildings, spotlighting the beauty of the natural environment, fostering an inclusive environment, capitalising on under-utilised spaces, and strengthening sustainable practices.

Integrated Residential Boarding

1. Co-locating Boarding

The current Girls’ House will be expanded and two wings established, one for girls and the other for boys. The existing Boys’ House will be repurposed into learning space to improve the integration and flow of precincts along the Academic Street.

2. Refurbished Facilities

The facilities in the Boarding House will be refurbished with the addition of a shared recreation space and shared kitchen.

Each wing will also contain single and double rooms with shared bathrooms and separate lounge area. The existing dining room will remain as the space for boarders to share their main meals.
