Families invited to purchase a chapel chair

Here is an exciting opportunity for our families to support the fundraising required to complete the build of the Hornsby Learning Hub by purchasing the rights to name a fixed chair in the Chapel of Christ the King.

As the school roll grows, so too does the need for new infrastructure and more resource. The next couple of years will see an exciting addition to the St Paul’s campus in the form of the Hornsby Learning Hub, located in the ‘heart’ of the school. Although this new building will replace the Hornsby Library, it will continue to honour the name of the couple whose energy and generosity is behind the existing library.

Mr Reg Hornsby, the school’s fifth headmaster, and his wife Mary played a significant role in the history of St Paul’s and its crucial formative years. The Hornsby Library opened in 1968 and was built to cater for 360 students. It proved an immediate success, providing an oasis of warmth and quiet amid the normal rush of school life. With a roll of 750 today, St Paul’s has outgrown this space, and the Hornsby Library no longer meets the requirements of today’s teaching and learning.

Leave your legacy and support our students. 

As the legacy of Reg and Mary Hornsby lives on, so too can yours by purchasing a chapel chair plaque to support the Hornsby Learning and future students of St Paul's.

There are 150 chairs available for naming at the cost of $1,500 per chair.  Equal payments of $500 can be can be paid over three years to ensure you secure a seat.
