'Rob' Wells and the Memorial Wing Table. (Ad Astra 1996).

The Wells Memorial Table is a hand-built timber table specifically designed for use in the enclosed foyer in the Memorial Wing.

It was crafted by former woodwork teacher, WELLS, Robert Douglas (1933-2018), as a retirement donation to the College following a suggestion by staff member, Maria Smith. The timber used is 'Amoora', a select furniture timber from Malaysia.

The pottery urn on the table was a gift made and donated by former Head of Fine Arts, Terry Egan.
