Labora: Always illuminating and never boring!

Our school magazine, Labora, showcases so much that is special about the spirit and achievements of our school community. In a school committed both to valuing our heritage and inspiring our future, Labora reflects connection and engagement. Labora magazine has informed our School and alumni community since March 1957. It began as a four-page newsletter of the Caulfield Grammarians’ Association, developed by then President, Russ Mathews (1926-29). It was modelled on the successful monthly bulletins written by staff member, Hugh Gemmell Lamb-Smith (1913-15). In his first editorial Russ outlined his desire for ‘La Bora’ to “provide a galaxy of news on old boys, notes on coming events, post mortems on past ones, and news of the School”. He recruited an enthusiastic editorial team of Alan Hick...

Visible Wellbeing

Visible Wellbeing is one of Caulfield Grammar’s six Teaching and Learning priorities. Here, Mary Craven, Visible Wellbeing Project Leader, explains how our school community has been working in partnership with Professor Lea Waters to strengthen our understanding of wellbeing, how it can impact on our lives and strategies for improving it for all.
