As the son of a King’s Old Collegian, an old scholar myself, and a current parent, I am humbled and extremely honoured to enter my fourth year as the President of the Pembroke Old Scholars Committee.
Having joined the Old Scholars Committee in 2010, I have had the opportunity to observe and learn from three Presidents during that time, Gay Sanderson (’62), Scott Peters (’86) and David Dall (’92).
During my time on the Committee, I have served for four years as Treasurer, one year as Vice President and the last three years as President. I have been involved with the Pembroke Old Scholars' Soccer Club for many years and in 2012 I established the Pembroke Old Scholars' Girls Soccer Club.
The Pembroke Old Scholars Association’s role is to promote unity and friendship amongst old scholars through events, reunions, and our social media platforms.
As an old scholar of Girton, King’s and Pembroke, you are a part of a community of nearly 16,000 old scholars spread out across 58 countries around the globe. Your fellow old scholars work in many different industries and we encourage you to connect with each other, no matter where you are in the world.
I am excited by the working relationship built over the years with Pembroke School Principal, Mr Luke Thomson, and we continue to look at more innovative ways to serve the School and its old scholar community.
If you do not have one already, make sure to purchase your P-cap or beanie and wear it with pride! The profits from these sales help us to fund bursaries for students of old scholars, our annual Careers Breakfast, other old scholar events, and affiliated clubs’ activities.
Please keep in touch and update your details so you can hear about the latest news and events for old scholars.
Ex Unitate Vires – Out of Unity, Strength

The Pembroke Old Scholars’ Association is an incorporated entity governed by an elected Committee, which seeks to:
- further the welfare of the School;
- promote unity and friendship amongst former students and staff of the School and its predecessors (King's and Girton);
- maintain the interest of such former students and staff in the School;
- promote the involvement of members in the Association, in Clubs and other bodies affiliated with the Association.
The Committee meets on Wednesday evenings seven times each year. Old scholars are encouraged to get involved with their Association (including those living outside of Adelaide). Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
