Recently our community came together to celebrate the opening and naming of the Graham Thomson AM grandstand on Old Boys’ Hill, overlooking Miskin Oval.
Following construction, the College and OCA were approached to name this facility in recognition of a community member who shares a long association with BBC and embodies the values and traditions of our School.
Mr Thomson, a long serving BBC Headmaster (1974 to 1989, later providing additional support in 1996) was humbled to have this facility named in his honour.
“It is an absolute privilege to be recognised in this way. The grandstand overlooks the Rugby field where I vividly remember BBC winning our first Rugby Premiership in 1954. I haven’t missed many games since, and it was tremendous to cheer the First XV to a Premiership again in 2020.”
Having dedicated much of his life to Brisbane Boys’ College, the PMSA and education in Queensland, this is a fitting tribute for Graham Thomson AM.
Thank you to the Rugby Support Group for funding this initiative and to our BBC School Council, Old Collegians’ Association and Parents and Friends’ Association for their support.
