Dr Robert's Bequest

For more than 70 years after first walking through the Brisbane Grammar School gates, Old Boy Dr Bruce Roberts ’45 maintained his affinity with the School.

Dr Roberts, who passed away aged 88 in 2016, left a generous Bequest of $249,226 to the School that will serve to support others embarking on their BGS journey through needs-based bursaries.

Remembered for his quiet nature and medical achievements, Dr Roberts was one of Ipswich’s longest serving doctors. He had great respect from his patients and led the way in innovation, with Dr Roberts’ practice the first to use mobile phones and computers. Going beyond his role as a GP, he led the transformation of St Andrew’s Private Hospital into a significant institution as Chairman, and was a member of the Queensland Medical Board.

The School salutes Dr Roberts’ generosity and contribution to the greater community.
