Jeffery Boyes Scholarship
On Friday afternoon, 24 November, the Chapel of St Thomas was filled with the melodic sounds of the School’s Barbershop Quartet and the beautiful solo voice of the current Jeffery Boyes Choral Scholarship holder, Nicholas Kains.
Around fifty friends, family and past colleagues of the late Jeffery Boyes gathered to celebrate his life, generosity and foresight through his bequest for a scholarship which we now know as the Jeffery Boyes Choral Scholarship. Nicholas Kains continues into Year 12 in 2018, and three new recipients were announced and now carry the same honour and privilege of the Boyes legacy, with new student Hugh Gable from St Virgil’s College entering Year 11, current Hutchins boys, Hugo Allison entering Year 7 and Lachlan Browne into Year 6.
Close friend and colleague of the late Jeffery Boyes, Bob Brewster, spoke to the gathering, giving a fascinating insight and history of a truly generous and remarkable man. The event will now be held annually, a valuable addition to the School calendar and a celebration of the wonderful co-curricular opportunities available to boys at Hutchins.
