Philanthropic impact Melbourne Grammar School Foundation 1 January 2019 to 30 September 2021


Learn, achieve, grow My purpose in telling this story is, however, about philanthropy. Since Federation, there have been 101 Victoria Cross medals awarded to Australians for the most exceptional valor in war. And William Joynt gifted his Victoria Cross to Melbourne Grammar.

Philip Solomon QC


ithin the proud architecture of Melbourne Grammar, there sits The Old Melburnians War Memorial Hall. It was erected in memory of the 210 members of the School who gave their lives in the Great War, funded by Old Melburnians in honour of those who had fallen, and it was opened in 1928. Honour in war time has always been a Melbourne Grammar hallmark. I want to mention one Old Melburnian, in that regard. Colonel William Donovan Joynt (OM 1904) – a student of the School in the first decade of the 20th century. In August 1918, a month in which the Great War remained in the balance, he participated in a battle at Herleville Wood at Peronne in France. For his most exceptional valour in that battle, he was awarded the Victoria Cross.

Philanthropy is at the very core of Melbourne Grammar. The illustrations are myriad. Grimwade House, itself, of course – the gift of the four Grimwade brothers in 1917; or the generosity which permitted the Nigel Peck Centre for Learning and Leadership; and the Geoff Handbury Science and Technology Hub, each in this century. And it is not only buildings and grounds. The Scholarship Program Melbourne Grammar offers is central to its culture: its values and beliefs. What I find most inspiring is the opportunities that these scholarships create. That moment when a boy’s life changes, when he and his family are told that, by reason of his excellence: in scholarship, in music or otherwise as may be, that he will become a student of this School. For Melbourne Grammar is a wonderful place. It inculcates learning; and allows strong academic performances. It has an inclusive and successful sporting program. It has wonderful opportunities in music and in drama and in visual arts and in debating. It produces prospective leaders; it encourages community service; it applauds excellence, and it respects participation.

I have seen this in 12 years as a student; in 15 years as a parent; in my 12 years on the Foundation Board and my seven years on Council; and in other School committees on which I have been privileged to serve. I have – we all have – however, a great responsibility. We have a responsibility to stand on the shoulders of those who preceded us, and philanthropically take steps to ensure that this School can fulfil its vision. Its vision in its Indigenous Program; its vision in Scholarships – and the opportunities which they provide; its vision in its 21st century buildings; and its vision for independence through its Endowment Fund. The implementation of the vision is inspiring to countenance, but it is an enormous responsibility. The Melbourne Grammar School Foundation feels viscerally the responsibility. We look to the School community to permit its implementation. We look to each of you to give as you may. We do not all have Victoria Crosses to donate to the School, but we can all find our own way to contribute. The School is worthy and it very much appreciates the support from all who may offer. I hope you find the following pages interesting, and inspiring. Philip Solomon QC (OM 1986) President of the Melbourne Grammar School Foundation

A new scholarship to pay it forward “I know I wouldn’t be in the position I am today if it weren’t for Melbourne Grammar.” Martin Hoe (OM 1987)

“As a student at another school I was a big fish in a small pond, but when I moved to Melbourne Grammar in Year 9, I was surrounded by classmates who were on another level, both academically and in terms of their work ethic. That was life changing for me,” he explains. “My parents wanted the best education they could get for me. Melbourne Grammar was at the top of their list,” Martin says. “They sacrificed a lot to educate me and my siblings.” Melbourne Grammar opened up a whole world of possibilities. “I didn’t grow up in a household where ‘management consultant’ or ‘investment banker’ were even mentioned as possible career paths,” Martin says. “It was only through my experiences at Melbourne Grammar that I started to understand the breadth of what I could actually do.” In addition to enjoying the “challenging” academic culture of the School, Martin pursued an impressive range of cocurricular opportunities including cross country, swimming, and the Duke of Edinburgh program. “I have always been a big game player,” he explains.


Melbourne Grammar School Foundation

“Even now my 14-year-old daughter and I regularly have super big Boggle competitions.” After Melbourne Grammar, Martin took a circuitous route to his current profession, pursuing degrees in actuarial science, commerce, law, and science. “My time at Melbourne Grammar taught me not to slow down just because there’s no one around you to compete with,” he explains. “Motivation has to come from within.” Martin puts his success down to a combination of determination and resourcefulness, along with a modicum of luck. Relatively early in his career, when working with the American consulting firm, Booz Allen Hamilton, Martin was sponsored to complete his MBA at Stanford University. He followed this with time working in a number of high-tech companies, as a trainee equity options trader on the stock exchange floor in San Francisco and as a portfolio manager for a large capital management firm. Then, in 2008, he made the jump with a colleague to establish his own hedge fund.

“I tell my kids that my career path has not just been of my own making,” Martin explains. “Someone with a similar educational and professional background might not get that ‘lottery ticket’ that makes the difference, but you have to put yourself in a position to get that ticket in the first place.”

The cascading effect of philanthropy Because Melbourne Grammar opened so many doors for Martin, and as the recipient of a scholarship throughout his time at the School, he feels compelled to pay it forward. Establishing a scholarship was the obvious next step. “I would want this scholarship to be transformative not just in terms of education, but in expanding the recipient’s scope of opportunity,” he adds. “I want to give that to someone who might be able to take advantage of all Melbourne Grammar has to give.” If you would like to support talented and driven students through Melbourne Grammar School's Scholarship program, please contact: Carl Junot, Head of Development +61 3 9865 7683 For more information visit:

Commitment, enthusiasm, and the secret to rowing success Tony Smith with the 1982 First VIII crew

As a student, teacher, rowing coach, and supporter of our community, Tony Smith (OM 1949) has dedicated his life to Melbourne Grammar School. Whether demonstrating a classroom concept, or perfecting a rowing stroke, Tony says “it’s all teaching, in one way or another”. Tony’s connection to rowing began during his time as a student when he was part of the crew that won Head of the River in 1949. The next year, Tony left home to take the four-week journey by ship to England, where the next chapter of his life would begin. “A friend of the family encouraged me to go to Oxford,” Tony explains. “It was so different, and such a special place to be.” While at Oxford, Tony deepened his connection to rowing, joining the Merton College crew that went on to win Head of the River for the first time since the College’s founding in 1264. After returning to Australia, Tony found himself back at Melbourne Grammar— this time at the front of the classroom. “I taught anything from junior maths to Latin and general science,” he says. At the end of his first year, Headmaster Brian Hone asked Tony to stay on a while longer. “I came on staff to fill in, and left 41 years later,” Tony says.

10 Melbourne Grammar School Foundation

As a Melbourne Grammar teacher, Tony pioneered the study of Geology at our School, and became Head of Bromby House, a role he held for over 20 years. “As Housemaster, the most important aspect of my role was to look after the whole person,” Tony says.

“I wanted Bromby boys to be honest, to have integrity, and to grow up to be decent people.” Tony Smith (OM 1949)

Nurturing generations of rowers to be their best Over his many years in the classroom, Tony contributed to the education of hundreds of students. But it was in his role as a rowing coach where Tony left the most indelible mark of all. As coach of the First VIII, Tony led crews to claim five Heads of the River, four of which were won in successive years – in 1958, then 1979 – 1982. “Tony was absolutely committed— he knew the crew didn’t know their limitations, and near enough was not good enough,” says Tom Griffith (OM 1982), a member of the 1981 First crew, which had their 40-year reunion this year.

“He was our mentor and hero,” adds fellow 1981 First crew member Andrew Watson (OM 1981). “He means as much, if not more, to us all now as he did back then.” Today, the ‘Tony Smith’ boat named in his honour still takes to the water with our rowing crews on board. So, what is the coaching secret that brought Tony’s crews their historic successes? His answer is as enigmatic as it is direct: “Put the blade in the water and lever the boat past the blade.” Tony continued coaching Year 9 crews into retirement, and served as the editor of the Melburnia Club newsletter for over 20 years. As a member of the Witherby Tower Society, his support of Melbourne Grammar School continues to the present day.

Looking ahead Philanthropy is at the heart of Melbourne Grammar School’s history, success and values. Our donors choose to give to Melbourne Grammar because they know their actions transform lives. Our students take the lessons and values learned at Melbourne Grammar School and go on to make meaningful contributions to society’s culture, knowledge, and wellbeing. Old Melburnians are contributing knowledge and support across all areas of society, using their talents for the betterment of others through business, law and politics, the arts, medicine, science and technology, sport and more.

We work with donors who have a wide range of philanthropic aspirations. No matter your goals, your gift will have a positive impact. Cultural gifts, such as notable artworks, are also welcome. Some people choose to make a gift to honour or in memory of a person dear to them, or who has had a significant impact on their lives. The preceding pages represent our effort to demonstrate gratitude to each of our donors, and to demonstrate the impact their generosity has on our students and school. Please contact us if you wish to have a confidential discussion about options on how your gift can have the greatest impact.

Our philanthropic priorities are:

Scholarships and Bursaries

Indigenous Bursary Program

The Endowment Fund

Providing inspiring spaces and maintaining our facilities and technology to the highest standard.

Offering financial support for students who need and deserve it – young people from all walks of life who share our values and contribute to our diverse learning environment.

Helping more young Indigenous men access a high-quality education in a welcoming, nurturing and warm community that aims to encourage strong cultural understanding.

Allowing the School to direct distributions from the Endowment Fund to the most important priorities, maximising opportunities for educational excellence.
