Armitage Lectures

The Armitage lecture series was established in 2005 to remember the first Old Boy of the School who entered the ordained Anglican Ministry. Rev Isaac Armitage left funds in trust to provide a small bursary for Old Boys of the School who entered Moore College. The Lecture series aims to encourage thinking on matters to do with Anglican Schooling.

The 12th Isaac Armitage Lecture was delivered by Rev. Dr David John Sandifer, on 26 August 2016. The Lecture: “Cultivating innocence: Character formation in the age of porn” and the response by Mrs Jann Robinson, Principal, St Luke’s Grammar School are available by following the links below.
