Principal’s Report

Celebrating an historic event… unveiling of the Principal portrait

On Thursday 13 June members of the Melbourne High School Foundation Ltd hosted an event to unveil the portrait of the 13th principal, Mr Jeremy Ludowyke. Last year the Foundation approved funding to commission artist Warwick Gilbert to paint the portrait.

The project was steered by School Council member and Melbourne High School Old Boys’ Association immediate past president Mr Peter Stathopoulos. A sincere thank you to Peter for the work undertaken to oversee the various stages of the project and bring it to fruition.

The event brought together members from all parts of our community including current and past students and staff.
