Home' Capricornus Quarterly : CQ Oct 2016 Contents 3
Dr Phillip Moulds
We see in this edition of numerous examples of what we are
capable of and how the magnificent, complex network of thoughts,
actions and environment shapes our perceptions and choices.
Rower Sasha Belonogoff, for example, talks about realising his Olympic
dream in Rio whilst contemplating Tokyo in 2020; and a new book on
the life of former RGS Headmaster Henry Arthur Kellow reminds us
of the importance of the “intangibles” and
external factors which contribute so much
to learning and character development.
The author of the Kellow biography,
The Moving Mind, is Central Queensland
historian Dr Lorna McDonald, who – at 100
years of age – launched the book at the
Memorial Assembly Hall in September.
Lorna is vibrant, funny and engaging
and exemplifies much of the vision, resilience and capacity talked
about in a separate article, Women’s Leadership, on page 18.
The School is very grateful to Headmaster Kellow’s grandchildren who
visited RGS for the first time for the book launch. Their father, Harry, was
born and schooled at RGS until he was 12. A Sydney doctor, he often
spoke to John and Roslyn about the ‘School on the Hill’ and they both
shared deeply with us the strong force RGS has been in their own lives.
I recommend The Moving Mind to every RGS family and Past Student.
Kellow was a remarkable man. A scholar, a poet, a literary critic, an athlete,
an educator – a moving mind; he was devoted to his family, to education
and to his students. He, his teachers and his students were strong and
determined, sympathetic and understanding, and inquisitive and creative.
Kellow reminds us that because of our moving mind, we are capable of
achieving any thing. In that context, and in many others, the Kellow spirit is
still very much alive at RGS.
