Our current prospectus, ‘The one for all’, makes a clear statement about our co-educational future, from 2016. Outlining our aims and aspirations to the pre-eminent co-educational boarding school in NSW, it outlines our expanded horizons enabled by a more diverse array of students – greater teacher specialisation, wider subject choice, a broader and deeper co-curricular program as well as new facilities and support structures for both students and staff.
TAS Vision 2025
Published in 2010, Vision 2025 outlines The Armidale School’s Strategic Plan, providing a framework to meet our goal to become the pre-eminent boarding and day school in regional NSW and amongst the best in the nation. The document is available for viewing online here
The Armidale School Register
The Armidale School Register was commissioned for the school’s centenary year, 1994. Seven years in the making and compiled by former staff member Mrs Belinda Anstock with the assistance of Old Boy and historian Owen Wright, the 376 page hardcover book includes a register of all students, teachers, managers and administrators who have passed through TAS in its first 100 years. It is also an honour roll of those who served their colony and country in war; it is a record of those who have won prizes or held office at the school, and includes school songs, lists of sporting teams and dramatic productions, words to school songs and historic photos. Now out of print, it is a unique reference for anyone with associations to TAS.
A School of Their Own
Written for the school’s centenary by long-time TAS History teacher Jim Graham, A School of Their Own is the official history of TAS – how it came into being from a dream for an English-style public school in the Hunter Valley in the 1930’s, to the opening of the New England Proprietary School in Armidale in 1894; through war time, economic depression and vibrant growth; of the people that shaped it and the community to which it remains dear. It was published in a limited run of 1200 copies.
A Song to Sing, O
This 146 page softcover book is packed with Jim Graham’s colourful recollections of 43 years of musical drama at TAS. Spanning the period from 1956-1999, it recounts the productions and people involved in more than 100 shows, including decades of Gilbert & Sullivan operettas, outdoor musical extravaganzas, and Queen Victoria Music Halls performed by staff, parents and Old Boys that raised tens of thousands of dollars for the P&F. Filled with coloured photographs, the booklet is still available for sale for $45 (including postage). To purchase a copy contact TAS reception at [email protected]
