One hundred and twenty years ago, on Saturday, October 1st, 1898, St George’s College was opened in Quilmes.

The original founders were the Chaplain of the Anglican Church of All Saints’, Quilmes the Reverend J.T. Stevenson, along with the Chaplain of St Saviour’s Church in Belgrano and thirteen members of the local British community. Stevenson and his supporters were very clear that there were many excellent schools already functioning in Argentina, but none offered the type of education that was available in the Public Schools of England. By this he meant the “training of character........making boys fit to become men of affairs and to take positions of authority” and so the only way to remedy this situation was to found St George’s College.

St George’s, Argentina and the world in general have all changed enormously during these last one hundred and twenty years but the school is proud that this vision continues to be a central part of its mission. As Stevenson himself said in his retirement speech in 1935, “The best capital you can have in this world is character”.
