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.

1949

Small/Medium double-handled silver-plated cup on melamine stand; engraving on face of cup; accompanied by hand-written note of explanation

Historical information

As an incentive to improve school work and develop student leadership, from 1927 former Clarendon PLC student Nellie Sutherland (Coulter) donated a silver cup each year. The cup soon became a prestigious award. It was awarded to the girl holding the leading place in 'work, sport and above all moral character'. The cups were awarded annually until to 1951. Mrs Sutherland made these gifts partly to remember her school days under Mrs Kennedy and because the school in Mair Street was built on the site of her former home. But the main reason was in memory of her two brothers Jason and Les killed during World War 1. In 2001 the Junior School Parent Group funded the ongoing award for a Year 6 student. The award criteria in 2001 were 'general excellence in academic achievement, respect for and from others, a positive role model, involvement and initiative'. Beverley donated her Coulter Cup back to the school archive 'in appreciation of the wonderful experience I had a school' (CPLC reunion, April 2017).
