Diana, right, with her daughter Alaina.
Remembering Diana McLella n
The Rockhampton Grammar School
Board of Trustees, Headmaster,
Staff, Students and the entire School
community mourns the loss of our
respected and loved past student
Diana McLellan (nee Foster, RGS
1978) who was both a very passionate
student and supporter of The
Rockhampton Grammar School.
Diana died on 29 June after
a long batt le with cancer.
She was one of the first girls to return to
the School in 1977 when RGS went co-ed.
Her three children attended the
School: Alaina (RGS 2001), Conrad
(RGS 2006) and Hadrian (RGS 2008).
The former School Prefect and rower
also had a strong connection to the
School through the RGS Past Students’
Association. Diana was a regular
meeting attendee from the inception
of the A ssociation in 2002. She was
also a committee member (2003-2004),
treasurer (2008 -2010) and President
(2011) before ill health forced her to step
dow n from her leadership position.
Diana was an inaug ural RGS Race Day
Committee member (2004) and each
year thereafter, save for two years when
illness prevented her involvement.
The School community extends our
deepest condolences to Di’s family.

Bone chilling account
Ross Dunlop (RGS 1951-1954) had a mind
for science during his school years at The
Rockhampton Grammar School. K.C. Gillam
was his maths and physics teacher.
“ He shaped my career. I thoroughly enjoyed his
classes,’’ said Ross, a former day student when
there was less than 200 students at the School.
Ross knew he wanted a career in this field.
He never thought this passion would take him
from the warm Queensland climate to the
below freezing temperatures of Antarctica just
a few years after graduating. Ross joined a
23-member Australian National Antarctic Research
Expedition (ANARE) to Antarctica fromDecember
1959 to March 1960. The expedition was
in the name of scientific research, mapping
and surveying, meteorology and geology.
The expedition party boarded the ice
breaker ship, the Thala Dan, and it wasn’t quite
smooth sailing on the six-week voyage.
“ We lost part of our cargo of aviation
fuel not long out of Melbourne...”

1977: Co-ed again
“That first year was full of adventures as the
school adjusted to girls in their midst. We all felt
like we were at the beginning of something new
and different. Initially, the teachers called us
Miss Shannon, Miss Letchford, Miss Moret ti....
The girls uniform had a few interesting designs
including a horrid pill box red beret.”
