Turning of the Sod – 175th Quadrangle project

On Monday 1  November, Pulteney’s current oldest Old Scholar Mr Colin Wagener (1933), and third generation Pulteney Grammarian Ali Smit (Year 2) (mother Catherine (2000), grandfather David (1967)) joined Chairman of the Board of Directors Allen Candy, Principal Cameron Bacholer and Deputy Principals Deb Dalwood and Katherine Adnett, to commemorate the ‘turning of the sod’ of what will be the most significant legacy project from Pulteney’s anniversary in 2022, the 175th Anniversary Quadrangle Redevelopment Project.

On this day, initial works commenced on the refurbishment of Ray Wing North as the new staff common room replacing what was previously housed upstairs in the Nicholls Building until 2020; to be followed in due course by the landscaping of the Quadrangle.
