Warrnambool College continues its tradition of recognising past students who have excelled in their chosen field through the presenting of the Sir John Eccles Tall Poppies Awards.
This award is named in honour of the highly lauded Sir John Eccles AC, Nobel Laureate and Rhodes Scholar. Sir John was a pupil at Warrnambool High School during the years 1915-1918. His distinguished academic life and his contribution to the world community in the field of neuroscience are recognised in the striking of this award. It will be presented to past students of Warrnambool College.
Warrnambool College has a pupil population in the vicinity of 1250 students, with approximately 50 of these being indigenous. As with many regional towns, our indigenous students’ ancestries come from many and varied clans and places in Australia, with only a small percentage coming from Gunditjmara country. We value the rich history of the original land owners and attempt to celebrate that tradition and history in the 21st century.
