Message from Our Principal

I am delighted to share our annual Impact of Giving report with you, our valued donors. 2023 was a wonderful year for the Pembroke School Foundation, with over $600,000 raised in donations in support of a number of priorities. The breadth and depth of the generosity of the Pembroke community is to be commended and I am grateful for each and every gift. Each donation, no matter the size, helps to ensure that our students can achieve their very best here at Pembroke.

In 2023 and thanks to philanthropy, we granted almost $290,000 to Pembroke Scholarships benefiting six deserving students. Our Building Fund, which is so important as we strive to develop and improve our campus facilities, attracted more gifts than the previous year. Lastly, I was privileged to approve distributions of almost $40,000 to support families facing hardship through the Principal’s Hardship Bursaries.

Giving at Pembroke has never been more important. Like many independent schools, large capital projects are funded separately to the recurrent operating costs that are recouped through school fees. Therefore, we rely heavily on donations from our community to help fund ambitious projects to realise our dreams.

I look with excitement to what we can achieve in 2024 and beyond as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Pembroke.

My sincere thanks to the members of the Pembroke Foundation Board and the Development Office for their commitment to growing the culture of philanthropy at Pembroke.

Message from Our Chair of the Foundation Board

I am pleased to report that 2023 was an excellent year for the Foundation with incredible and positive engagement with many of our supporters, a highly successful community Giving Day and several other initiatives embracing many aspects of Pembroke School life. It has been a year of generous philanthropic giving and for this I am extremely grateful.

In March, King’s old collegian and Pembroke Foundation Guardian, the late Neil Balnaves AO, a longstanding and deeply admired member of the Pembroke School community, was fondly remembered at the official unveiling of Balnaves2 – a selection of works by extraordinary desert artists from the private Balnaves family collection. Later in the year, we welcomed a small group of supporters to experience the artworks and to hear from Ms Amanda Bourchier on the legacy of giving at Pembroke and from Mr Mark Staker on future plans for Pembroke. We remain grateful to the Balnaves family for their incredible support of Pembroke and for allowing an opportunity for us to connect with our community through the beauty of art.

Over the course of the year, we were privileged to be able to share with many of our supporters a host of Pembroke events that inspired and delighted all those who attended. Our supporters attended with such enthusiasm and we were so proud to share such a rich range of events –bringing joy to many.

Impact of Giving Report 2023

This year, our fundraising efforts were focused on campus improvements, with an appeal in support of a Reading Corner for the Senior School Library and a Giving Day to raise funds for the redevelopment of the John Moody Centre into a brand new Middle School Café and Boarders’ Dining Room. We were thrilled to see the whole School community come together with great spirit on Giving Day with multiple fundraising events across all three campuses and gifts from 662 donors! Thanks to our incredible seed donors, the School and those who donated on Giving Day, our target fundraising goal was reached. The new café and dining room will open in 2024 and we greatly look forward to celebrating this with all those who supported the appeal with such generosity. We also look forward to seeing upgrades to the Senior School Library in 2024 and sincerely thank all those who donated.

We finished a busy year with a wonderful event held at the new Home of Archives of King’s, Girton and Pembroke. The rich variety of materials on show inspired many conversations and memories and we are thrilled to be able to share this with our community. We look forward to sharing this beautiful facility with more of you in 2024.

In 2023, we received gifts from an outstanding 970 donors. Gifts ranged from donations for our Giving Day, the Building Fund – supporting campus renewal and future building projects, our Scholarships and Indigenous Education Program, and support for the Library, Endowment and Exceptional Circumstances funds.

Our Scholarships Program continues to grow, and we are grateful to all those who have and continue to support this. We now offer several scholarships made possible thanks to philanthropic giving and in 2023, six students across Years 10, 11 and 12 were grateful recipients of this incredible support. Scholarships supported entirely by philanthropic giving are the Pembroke Community Scholarship, the Margaret Sellars Scholarship, the James and Diana Ramsay Scholarship, the Indulkaninna Foundation Scholarship and the Scholarship for the Love of Learning in the IB.

The Foundation Board farewelled Mrs Wendy Wills, Mr Nick Dunstone, Mrs Amy Bredon and Dr Darren Townsend as Board members and welcomed Mr Vincent Ciccarello and Mr Ben Wilson. My grateful thanks are extended to Wendy, Nick, Amy and Darren for their contribution to the Foundation Board.

On behalf of the Pembroke School Foundation, we express our sincere thanks and gratitude to our community for supporting the work of the Foundation in 2023.

Giving Day 2023

Bringing our community together for a brand new Middle School Café and Boarders’ Dining Room.

On 17 August 2023, we celebrated Giving Day, a day when our community came together with unwavering enthusiasm and dedication to support a truly worthy cause. It was a day filled with spirit and action, with many individuals contributing generously.

The results were remarkable. Together with support from our generous pioneer donors, the School and many others in the community, we managed to reach our fundraising goal, a substantial sum that will be used to help transform the John Moody Centre on our King’s Campus. This transformation will bring about a new Middle School Café and a Boarders’ Dining Room, along with the opening of ‘Yellow Submarine Too Café’ on Shipsters Road. These developments are set to make a significant impact and touch countless lives.

We were so thrilled to see each sub-school enthusiastically support Giving Day. The day kicked off with a coffee morning at the Junior School attended by many parents, staff and Board members, and our juniors raised almost $600 in cold coin donations – what a great result!

The Middle School campus was buzzing with a hot donut and popcorn sale with a percentage of proceeds supporting the cause, while Middle School staff enjoyed a delicious morning tea and gave generously in support.

Our boarding students must be commended for hosting a delicious bacon and egg roll barbecue at lunch on the Senior School campus, and a raffle and soft drinks sale across both the Middle and Senior Schools.

All up, thanks to the incredible efforts by Middle and Senior School students and staff, $1,682 was raised –another fabulous achievement.

The transformation of the John Moody Centre will happen in 2024 and we greatly look forward to its opening and sharing it with our community.

Thank you to everyone who rallied behind Giving Day –we are so proud of our community for this incredible effort and for supporting us so generously.

Scholarships, Awards and Prizes at Pembroke

Pembroke is thrilled to be able to offer the following scholarships –each supported entirely by philanthropic giving.

Pembroke Community Scholarship

The Pembroke Community Scholarship is available for families who aspire to an excellent education but are not able to fund an independent school education for their child due to social or financial disadvantage or adverse personal circumstances.

Indulkaninna Foundation Scholarship

Established by a Pembroke old scholar family, the scholarship offers remission on Pembroke Boarding fees and is offered to students facing exceptional circumstances whose principal residence is in a rural area of South Australia or interstate.

James and Diana Ramsay Foundation Scholarship

The James and Diana Ramsay Foundation Scholarship is offered specifically for low income families who aspire to an excellent education but are unable to fund an independent school education for their child.

Pembroke Scholarship for the Love of Learning in the IB

This Scholarship has been established by a generous and longstanding member of the Pembroke School community for students wishing to study the International Baccalaureate Diploma who would otherwise be unable to access a Pembroke education.

Margaret Sellars Scholarship

Established by inaugural Foundation Patron Mrs Margaret Bennett, this scholarship supports students from rural primary producing communities who may not otherwise consider attending Pembroke.

Impact of Giving Report 2023
James Long in his Year 10 Mathematics class

“Receiving the Margaret Sellars Scholarship at Pembroke was an opportunity I will be forever grateful for. Though the prospect of leaving my hometown and family to become a boarder was daunting, I was able to focus on my studies and place myself in the best position before university. I had an array of opportunities to push myself academically, and interpersonally whilst at Pembroke. At school, I was pleasantly overwhelmed by the amount of support offered by dedicated and caring staff members. I was academically pushed across all my subjects, specifically Humanities subjects, and had the opportunity to commence my Law degree whilst in high school. In boarding, I developed lifelong friendships and gained independence which has largely assisted me during the transition between living in the Boarding House and living independently. I am incredibly thankful that Pembroke School offers the Margaret Sellars Scholarship, allowing country kids to experience an outstanding education and boarding life.”

– Zoe Furniss (2022)

Margaret Sellars Scholarship Recipient

“My time at Pembroke as a boarder and a scholarship recipient is something that I look back on with a great sense of pride and achievement. I come from a tiny town of 114 people called Leasingham, located in the Clare Valley. Moving from my parent’s property among the vineyards to Adelaide was a scary but incredibly rewarding experience, in which I made a bunch of friends from all over the world (many of whom I remain in contact with). I was supported by excellent teachers and given access to opportunities and experiences I could never have dreamed of back home. In Senior School, I completed the International Baccalaureate, which set me up to succeed in my education at the University of Adelaide. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Laws with a Bachelor of Arts Advanced (majoring in Politics and International Relations). I hope the Margaret Sellars Scholarship can continue to support country kids like me to fulfil their dreams.”

– James Long (2020)

Donor Profile –Why we Give

The Kroehn Family – Anna (1991) and Andrew

What is your connection with Pembroke?

Anna is an old scholar, attending as a boarding student from 1986 - 1991. We are parents of both a current boarding student and an old scholar. Anna is currently a Boarding Parent Representative, with both of our children boarding whilst at Pembroke.

What motivates you to give to Pembroke?

Having experienced the opportunities that an education at Pembroke can provide, we feel motivated to contribute and assist future students to have the same experience. Seeing how past projects and the scholarships provided by the giving program positively impact students - and enable them to take part in new opportunities, specialist subjects and co-curricular activitiesis a wonderful experience. We’re very grateful for all the benefits that our family has received from their education at Pembroke and want to give back so other students can benefit from a similar experience.

What do you hope to accomplish through your giving?

We give in order to continue to improve facilities that support the education, personal development and everyday lives of current and future students. We both attended boarding schools and hope that these contributions will enable other rural and remote students to experience the benefits that a well-rounded education delivers. We’re committed to being part of a community that seeks to continue to benefit and improve things for future students, as previous contributions by others have benefitted our family.

If you were talking to someone else about giving to Pembroke, what would you tell them?

It’s a meaningful way to directly contribute to the extended School community, and directly benefits the students. Improvements to School facilities such as Shipsters Road, boarding facilities, the Middle School Café and the Scholarships Program all are instrumental in making a quality education available to students who live both locally and remotely.

Parents’ and Friends’ Association

The entire Pembroke community extends its gratitude for the incredible fundraising efforts of the Pembroke Parents’ and Friends’ Association.

In 2023, the P&F Committee, ably led by Patricia Melzer, ran a series of highly successful fundraising events with $20,000 raised at the annual Mother’s Day Luncheon and an impressive $60,000 at the Long Lunch. The Long Lunch raised more than any other P&F fundraising event held at Pembroke.

Having raised significant funds for the Yellow Submarine Too Café, which will open in 2024 on the Middle School Campus, the P&F Association turned their fundraising focus to providing funding for landscaping for the new Middle School Café. We look forward to celebrating its opening in 2024.

In 2024, the P&F Association is aiming high to raise funds for brand new Junior School playground facilities.

Our thanks to all who volunteer their time to plan fundraising events and initiatives as part of the Parents’ and Friends’ Association.

A gift in your will has the power to transform the lives of young people. It will also help to sustain Pembroke into the future.

Pembroke welcomes bequests and is honoured to have been considered in the wills of several generous benefactors.

Their gifts have enabled us to develop facilities such as Dorothy Yates Hall and the DD Harris Wing of the Boarding House.

Girton teacher Mrs Dorothy Loughead generously bequeathed a property to the School, the sale of which allowed for development of the Girton Arts Precinct and supporting families with financial need.

If you notify the School that you intend to leave a gift to Pembroke in your will, you automatically join the Claridge Harris Club, established to honour and celebrate the enormous contributions of Dorothy Ward (née Claridge, Girton 1939) and DD Harris to, respectively, Girton Girls’ School and King’s College. As a member of this group, your pledge and support of the School is acknowledged during your lifetime.

For a confidential conversation or to find out more about leaving a gift in your will, please contact or call +61 8 8366 7094.

Indigenous Education at Pembroke

The Pembroke community is rich in cultural heritage. First Nations Australians are but one group which forms our remarkably diverse cultural landscape. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander scholars have been educated here since the 1960s – at both King’s College and Girton Girls’ School. In 2007, conversations with Pembroke Foundation inaugural Patron and Girton old scholar, Mrs Margaret Bennett (née Sellars, Girton 1939) led to a donation which allowed the establishment of the Indigenous Education at Pembroke Program (IE@P).

Funding, scholarships and leadership opportunities are offered by the Indigenous Youth Leadership Program (IYLP) managed by The Smith Family, and this offers an entry point for young Indigenous students wishing to attend Pembroke and to participate in the IE@P program. Since its inception, over 40 young First Nations scholars have graduated Year 12 through this program.

In 2023, we received several donations in support of the program which supports Indigenous students experiencing a funding gap to support their educational and boarding expenses.

We thank all donors who support the development of this important program.
