2023 Distinguished Past Students' Award recipients announced

On August 12th, the School will celebrate the achievements of several of our past students and past staff.  The Gala Dinner is an annual event that recognises the actions and achievements of past students who have gone above and beyond, and in doing so, encourage aspirations and ideals of the highest community standards and values.  We also recognise past staff as life members of the RGS Alumni.  To this end, we are proud to announce the award recipients for 2023.
