Calling for barrackers!

Where Legends
are Created

A message from Ross Featherston, BGS Headmaster

At Brighton Grammar, sport has always been woven into the fabric of school life. It is part of our tradition. It’s in our blood. It instils pride and binds us together.

And for more than 130 years, boys, staff and their families have passionately cheered the School along. But today we need you, our barrackers, to support the School like never before.

A purpose-built home for sport at BGS.

For the first time in the history of the School we are committed to creating a purpose-built home for sport at BGS. For too long we have been hampered by sub-standard, out of-date facilities.

Not only do we have insufficient changing rooms for our own teams, but we cannot appropriately host the other schools. We are also lacking a centralised space for conditioning and training, the study of health and physical education, or space for hosting sport-related functions for the boys and supporters.

Leave your mark on our supporters wall

While gifts of all sizes are valued, for this project we have an exclusive opportunity for recognition. For all donations of $1,000 or more, your name will be permanently chiselled into our Supporters Wall – a prominent feature on the front of the new Sports Pavilion. 

Every sporting team needs its barrackers

In this case, we need our barrackers to be supporters too. 

Headmaster of Top Private Boys School, Ross Featherston, talks to Year 10 students“Sport and recreation is at the heart of our community. School fees fund our day-to-day costs, but they don’t cover major developments that transform our boys’ education. With the Sporting Pavilion we are writing a new chapter in the history of sport at BGS. Don’t let us come up short – be part of the story.”

It's crunch time

The BGS Sports Pavilion is a $5 million project, and we are looking for $2 million from community donations.
We are already getting close to the first million-dollar target due to the amazing foresight and generosity of some major donors.

If everyone plays their role, the result will take care of itself.

This has long been the mantra of BGS coaches – ask any of the boys. But no truer words could be spoken when it comes to this year’s Annual Giving  Pavilion Appeal. Please make sure you play your part.

FUNCTION CENTRE  Nothing brings supporters together more than having somewhere to celebrate or commiserate after the game. The pavilion includes commercial-quality function and catering facilities. 


Now you’ve decided to support our Pavilion, we’d like to say thank you.
