This very special 125th anniversary year is punctuated by events, merchandise, moments of reflection about our past and excitement about the years ahead.

It is a year when significant projects that enhance this beautiful school should be undertaken and completed with the full support of our community. This is that year for TAS, and this is your opportunity to be involved. By making a tax-deductible donation to our Annual Giving Appeal, you are supporting projects that make a difference today and shape the school of tomorrow.

Appeals 2019

The iconic and magnificent TAS Dining Hall designed by the acclaimed English and colonial architect John Sulman is in need of attention and focus to restore it to its intended glory.

Last year’s fundraising made it possible for us to lower the stage to the original height, this year the appeal aims to fund the improvement of the lighting and sound as well as updating the furniture which is in genuine need of replacement. The funds required to complete this project are $100,000 to $125,000.

To commemorate the School’s 125th Anniversary, the OAU is building a suitable set of gates as its project to mark this very special year. The Chapel Street gates will echo the existing historic gates that mark the entrances from Douglas, Barney and Mann Streets.

This $40,000 project will give a substantial facelift to a part of the campus that is increasingly becoming the main entry to TAS for so many in the wider community.

The Building Fund helps us develop and maintain the beautiful TAS campus environment including the heritage buildings and magnificent gardens.

Scholarships and means-tested fees assistance help around 80 families each year provide their son or daughter with a TAS education. In the midst of the worst drought the region has ever seen, more and more families are in need of short-term financial assistance. This fund is a vital component of the Foundation’s ability to support our community.

This vitally important fund provides our indigenous students with access to the full breadth of co-curricular opportunities available at TAS. Application for assistance from the ISSF is made by the families and assessed by an independent panel to ensure each application meets with the objectives of the fund.
