Office Bearers

In 1896, Michaelhouse’s founder, James Cameron Todd, reflected that “a boy’s connection with his school is not severed when he leaves, but lasts throughout life. His whole tone, moral and spiritual as well as intellectual, is largely determined for life by his school.” One hundred and twenty-three years and generations of Michaelhouse boys on, we are still guided by our founder’s spirit and the belief that each boy who passes through our gates is taking the first major step on a life-long journey of self-discovery, personal growth and camaraderie. The distinctive ivy-clad architecture of interlinked quadrangles, which has inspired a sense of belonging for generations of boys, remains a constant touchstone to the over 6 500 Alumni across five continents.
