‘By preserving a faithful and regular record of all the doings of the School, of its fortunes, good or bad, of the achievements of any of its members, past or present, and of changes which may take place in it from time to time, we shall endeavor to supply a link, which will make all those, who once sat within these walls, felt that they belong to one and the same body still, even after they have entered upon life in places far away from their old School. And those, who are actually members of the School at the time, and who will read news which – to use an Irishism –they knew before, will, we trust, find a pleasure in having School events, which they have themselves witnessed, recalled to their memory, to form the subject of many a pleasant talk. Any successes or distinctions, won by members of the School, will be mentioned in these pages, and thus there should arise in the breast of each one of us an ambition to do something, in one way or another, to deserve to have his name and his achievement recorded for the admiration of future Armidalians’ (as former students of the school were originally known).

The Armidale School is very excited to announce the launch of our new Day Student ‘All-Rounder’ Scholarships. A limited number of scholarships for 50% tuition will be awarded to students who have demonstrated consistent academic achievement and involvement in sport or the creative arts and who would be enthusiastic about the opportunity of a TAS education. New day students entering TAS in Year 9 or above in 2019 are eligible to apply for these entrance scholarships. The closing date for application is Friday 28 September.
