Peter Sanderson awarded the 2017 Vitae Medal

The Old Scholars Association congratulates our long serving committee member Peter Sanderson on being named the 2017 Vitae medalist. The Vitae Medal is awarded by the school to a prominent old scholar who continues to live the school motto and values through his or her contribution to society in his or her field of endeavour. Peter Sanderson’s association with Adelaide High School has spanned over sixty years. He first enrolled as a Year 11 student in 1955, after transferring from a country school to complete his secondary education.  After completing his tertiary studies, Peter returned to the school as a teacher in 1961 and held the position of Special Senior Master, Chemistry when he transferred to another school in 1970.  In 1987, he returned to Adelaide High School as Principal and held that position until his retirement in 1996. Since his retirement, Peter has been a committee member with the Old Scholars Association and has worked tirelessly supporting events run by the Old Scholars Association which in the end benefit students in the school. He has also supported community organisations such as Rotary and Meals on Wheels. In fact it was Peter who began the Interact Club here at the school. Peter’s interest in the school hasn’t waned and he regularly attends assemblies and special functions and each year personally funds the P J Sanderson Prize for Chemistry, presented at the Senior Speech Day Assembly. Congratulations and well done...
