St Leo’s College turns 100 next year


Residents at St Leo's College

Centenary: St Leo’s College, within the University of Queensland, turns 100 and wants you to help celebrate.


NEXT year St Leo’s College, within the University of Queensland, turns 100 and wants you to help celebrate. 

If you are, or you know someone who is, a Leonian tell them to get in touch with St Leo’s so they can find out all the exciting events planned for next year.

The celebrations will kick off with an education conference in January followed by the unveiling and blessing of a sculpted bust of St Leo the Great in February. 

A community-wide gala ball will be held in July with a Centenary Mass at St Stephen’s Cathedral to take place in August. 

In September the annual Francis v Kassulke Cup rugby fixture will take place as well as a return to the site of the original college in Wickham Terrace where the college’s Centenary History will be launched.

The year will be rounded out with the Centenary Duhig Dinner and Lecture. Throughout the year the college will host receptions in regional centres – a Centenary on the Road.

Additionally there will be other events through the year which will give our 2017 residents the opportunity to take part in unique celebrations. 

Brisbane Broncos coach Wayne Bennett will be delivering the commencement address and we are lucky enough to be hosting our inaugural Visiting Fellow, Professor Ronan Deazley. 

At the end of the year our 2017 leavers will take part in the Valete dinner and all residents will seal and deliver a time capsule. 

To ensure you are part of the celebrations contact Shona Clayton – Stakeholder Engagement and stay up to date with the latest college news email
