By Ian McDonald

To celebrate the Centenary, a St Laurence’s College history book has been produced, and is an ideal gift for friends and family, or can serve as your own personal souvenir of this momentous year.

After more than two years researching, interviewing, collating material, sourcing images and writing the text, author and current principal Ian McDonald, tells the story of the rich tapestry and history at St Laurence’s College while highlighting the Laurie’s community, the architecture and history by decade, with photos and so much more.
