28 November

The first Jacaranda Day service is held 40 years after the jacaranda tree was planted to commemorate a visit from the Duchess of Gloucester. Jacaranda Day was an initiative by Mrs R. Ram, a science teacher at the College, to celebrate the existence of beauty in a changing world.

Each year in November the whole school assembles on Gloucester Lawn around the purple blossomed jacaranda tree for a service of thanksgiving.
