At the end of last term Bishop Druitt College celebrated the 20th anniversary of its beginning. To celebrate, a special assembly was held where Mr John Foulcher, a well know Australian poet and one of our former teachers at BDC, recalled the early vision of the college and how things had certainly changed in twenty years. The principal, Mr Alan Ball, announced the Foundation Day award winners for 2014:
