TAS Foundation Annual Giving 2020

The Board of the TAS Foundation has decided not to send our Members a donation request at the end of this financial year in recognition of the fact so many of you are facing your own challenges and hardships. However, if you are able to make a tax-deductible gift to the School, it will be very gratefully received, and you can do so by clicking the button below. I assure you that all donations to the funds set up for scholarships or buildings provide TAS and its students with vital support.

Mr John Grant
President, TAS Foundation


During his 21 years as Headmaster at TAS, Murray Guest had an indelible impact on thousands of students and hundreds of staff, educating, supporting and inspiring them to be the best they can be.

His influence on generations of boys and girls will be life-long and under his visionary and innovative stewardship, The Armidale School has grown and flourished to become one of the leading co-educational boarding schools in the country. His tragic loss has been devastating, but his rich legacy will live on.

In his memory, the TAS Foundation has launched the Murray Guest Scholarship which will be available to assist a worthy student attend TAS, who otherwise would not be able to do so.

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.

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

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.
