Builders of HSC

Since the founding of Highfield in 1901, and throughout the periods of Hillcrest, Hillfield, Strathallan and their successor, Hillfield Strathallan College, there have been many loyal and hard-working constituents whose support represented major factors in the very existence and development of the schools. To acknowledge the outstanding contribution over time of those who have given so much by way of personal effort and /or financial support, new Builders are honoured at a celebratory dinner, which takes place every 2 years. Builders are selected from the main sectors of the College's constituency including alumni, former parents, friends, former governors and former staff.
