 The Geelong College - College Community   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Football, and cricket too, began to assume a large part in school life, and the matches, which in the beginning were always played on Saturday mornings, so that school work might not be interfered with, soon came to be important enough to warrant the granting of half-holidays.
In 1884 four matches were played—two against Geelong Grammar School, of which the College won the first, and the Grammar School the second, and one each against Ballarat College and Hawthorn Grammar School, both of which resulted in easy wins for the College by 13 to 0 and 7 to 0 respectively.
Geelong Grammar School had defeated all the public schools, so that there was abundant justification for the comment of The Australasian:—"These performances of the Geelong College team give them the honour of first position amongst our school football champions for the year.

 Walkabout - Geelong
In 1993 urban sprawl forced the de facto recognition that Geelong, Geelong West, Newtown, South Barwon, Bellarine and the shire of Corio were effectively a continuous whole and they were amalgamated to form the City of Greater Geelong which, in 1996, had a population of 175 409.
Geelong has always been a major port and has always had a symbiotic relationship with the fertile agricultural and pastoral districts to the west and north-west of the city - a relationship which is manifest in the form of huge bay-side grain silos.
Geelong, for the moment, was outstripped by Ballarat and Bendigo and was derisively referred to by Melburnians as 'Sleepy Hollow'.

Corio is one of Geelong's largest and most diverse suburbs, spreading from the Shell Oil Refinery west into residential areas and north along the coast of Corio Bay.
When the prestigious Geelong Grammar School moved to new buildings and grounds at Corio in 1914, it was still a small and under-developed suburb.
During the 1950s, the population grew rapidly and several schools were built in the 1960s and 1970s to serve this dynamic suburb.

 Geelong Grammar School - History
From the outset the School developed a distinctive flavour, stemming from the interaction of strong English boarding school traditions with the free-wheeling and egalitarian social forces that were typical of the young Australian colony.
The move was as much initiated by the desire to provide a learning and living environment for students in a 'village community' with staff and their families, relatively isolated from the distractions of the town, as it was by the need to accommodate rapidly increasing numbers, particularly boarders.
The school, which was founded in 1887, had acted as the chief Melbourne preparatory school for Geelong Grammar for some time before coming under its auspices in 1947.

It is a particular honour in view of the fact that this is the 150 th anniversary of the school's establishment.
It recognises that you have paid your taxes to support the state school system but have chosen a non-government school which carries ¼ of the public subsidy of a state school because you believe this school gives your son or daughter the best start in life.

 FHA - Geelong Grammar School Speech Day Address by Tim Macartney-Snape
Of course parents must be satisfied that the school is doing the job well but parents are to be reminded that the school, especially a church school, has a greater duty than parent satisfaction.
A school can and must do much to foster that component as is perhaps most succinctly put by Michael Persse when he wrote for the Corian that true education consists of the recognition and restoration of primal innocence.
It was Dr Darling whose steerage of this school gave the structure that produced the strength needed.
