The Hobday Prize for a student in Year 12 in recognition of outstanding overall service to the College community is a current, annually offered award which has continued since 1968.

In 1967, a special prize for ‘Service to the School’ was awarded to C N Beel and in the following year the Hobday Prize was first awarded to R D Grover.

The prize resulted from a donation of funds in 1968 by John Mercer Hobday.
