March 15,1997 was a very special day in the history of the Girls Gramm School. Not only did w CGIebrat 2 years o secondary education for gir s in Queensland but also witnessed The Honourable I. M. Macrossan A 'et Justic of the Supreme Court of Queens

who believed in and fouuht for the establishment of free conipulsory and secular education for all. She also praised the efforts of the prin cipal, Iudith Hancock, who, Dr Hirst maintained, shared character 1stICs with Sir Charles Liney. She described them as ' one of a kind -

the future of Australia.

Following the Liney Oralion. the Friends of Girls Gramni held a formal Foundation Day Dinner in the original school assembly hall One hundred and twenty guests, Twentieth Century Australia and its 'digital future". it also includes a text about an Aboriginal artist who has taken his Walmajarri helilace into the realities of the modem world. Rockhampton Girls Grammar were present to enjoy Ih_ friendly coin any and lively conversation. A number of Sir Charles Liney's descendants were also welcome guests. Entertainment was provided by the string quartet of Leanne Day, Susan Jetme, Cartierme Chapman and Iiza Marthews. The beautiful voices of the Senior Choir sang the songs that have become traditional for these affairs : 7/2e Girl, ,I'll"I Tr, ,dino, and Tnni's Whni Fife, Ids Are Fo, ..

The pace of Ih social and techno logical changes that have taken place in Australia and especially in ueensland during this century was highlighted by Justice Macrossan. He expressed concerns that we should not heed too easily the pressure groups who call for a rodieal and immediate transforma- lion of oar way of life. "We need to remember that the most strident Justic an OSsan challenged his Isleners to avoid the tra of assiv Ity concluding with the plea that ' we mus ot underva ue our 'nsti tutions an democrati processes". This address is currently being printed as a penmanent record and copies ar available through the school.

Over 200 people met in the Gehrmann Theatre to honour the memory of Sir Charles Liney, the prime mover for th establishment of the School and to hear Justice Macrossan's address.
