Ballarat Clarendon College Ballarat, Victoria

Reverend William Henderson opened Ballarat College on Wednesday 6 July 1864 when two seven-year-old cousins presented themselves at his church, St Andrew's Presbyterian. On the following Monday morning they were joined by three other boys to become the first students of the school.

Elizabeth Kennedy, the wife of another Presbyterian minister, came to Ballarat to live and in 1876 she began a cottage school for her children and the daughters of family friends. This was the beginning of what became known as Mrs Kennedy's School for Girls, later to become Clarendon Presbyterian Ladies College.

In 1974 Ballarat College and Clarendon Presbyterian Ladies College formally joined together to become Ballarat & Clarendon College, now associated with the Uniting Church in Australia.

The school history has been documented in two publications by Phil Roberts on 2004 and 2014 respectively - Golden heritage: history of ballarat and Clarendon 1864 - 2004 and a companion volume Ballarat Clarendon College: One hundred and fifty years. These books are available for sale from the school.

Hi, I have received my great grandfather's (Robert Cameron) medal (9ct gold) for wining the 2nd Ballarat College Old Collegian Cup in 1891. Could you tell me more about the race/cup? Kind Regards Greg McLean

Ballarat Clarendon Administrator 28 February 2017 12:37 PM

Hi Greg, thank you for your enquiry. Athletic Sports carnivals were held annually at Ballarat College, often at the same time as old collegians annual reunions and always with some races exclusively for 'old boys'. From 1884 College Cups were donated by the Old Collegians Association for the outstanding athlete amongst present boys and past boys. Handicap races were run over 120, 250 and 440 yards to obtain the results. In the first year Thomas Thompson won the old boys cup. Robert Cameron entered Ballarat College in 1885. We cannot confirm his year of leaving but going by his age (Birth: 13.10.1871) we expect he would have left before 1891 so that would put him in the old boys category. Our school archive holds examples of Old Collegians Cups from this era. They were extremely ornate as you will see from examples catalogued to Victorian Collections. However we do not hold personal medals relating to the cups themselves. If you were able to forward a photograph of the medal's inscriptions I would be most grateful.

Book - Flight command: from the farm to the front line

Ballarat Clarendon College, Ballarat

Medium size, soft cover book

Historical information

John Oddie's (1974) appointment as deputy commander of Aussie forces in the Middle East capped a remarkable career of service to Australia. Sadly, this honour also involved the heartbreaking duty of informing families of the deaths of their husbands and sons in Afghanistan and overseeing departure ceremonies for the fallen soldiers. As well as covering the war in Afghanistan, Flight Command provides an insider's account of being a combat pilot in the first Gulf War, a commander supporting peace in Bougainville and security in Cambodia and the often harrowing experience of being a first-response commander dealing with the aftermath of the Boxing Day tsunami in Indonesia. By turns heart-warming and poignant, Flight Command is the story of a farm boy who managed to carve an international career in the military that included service in two wars.
