Vale Colin Smith

We were saddened to learn of the sudden passing of long-serving College Board member Colin Smith on 12 October, aged 78 years.

Colin joined the Board in December 1986 as the Pakenham Uniting Church Member and served for a total of 28 years.

He was a parent of the College and provided incredible support through his service on the finance and executive committees. He was awarded Life Membership with Beaconhills College in 2014 and retired from the Board in 2016.

Executive Principal Stephen McGinley said Colin Smith provided “faithful and invaluable service” during his tenure.

“As a College, we will be taking the time to reflect and show gratitude for the service that Colin has shown,” he said. “It is a very sad day when as a community we lose a person of Colin’s stature and service.”
