Founders celebrations

The Founders Evening in May 2015, as always, was a highlight on our cultural calendar with Founders evening and selected items from the Inter-House Music Competition. The Uplands Founders, Board, staff, parents, friends and pupils joined the College on Thursday to celebrate our 18th birthday.


The symbolic candle-lighting ceremony, our oldest and most revered tradition, was led by Mr Dave Ernstzen, Headmaster of Uplands Prep School. 

The flame of the Founders candle represents knowledge, passed from candle to candle and throughout the school and community, symbolising the progression of the College out of the Prep. Mr Ernstzen lit the candle in the spirit of continuing the Prep tradition and ethos. This light was passed on by two Grade 2 pupils followed by 2 Grade 7 representatives to representatives from each of the grades in the College until all the candles were lit. 

To all our parents - your children are awesome!!Thereafter, our pupils provided outstanding entertainment. The music and drama department showed their talents to a very appreciative audience, who were treated to vocal solos, duets, dance items, piano, flute, orchestra and choir. The winners of the inter-house music competition received their certificates and a trophy was presented to College, the winning House.
