Jock Bremner Prize

Jock Bremner (1912-2000)

Mr John (Jock) Andrew Bremner was a teacher at Kent Street from February 1950 to his retirement in December 1973. This period formed a substantial part of his teaching career spanning over forty years. At Kent Street, a school he greatly admired, he taught science and physical education, as well as being actively involved in the Army Cadet Unit. He excelled in science teaching and had a particular interest in chemistry. His classes were always full of interest as he regularly introduced new ways to teach difficult material. His enthusiasm, commitment and special ability to encourage students to excel and to give 100% to any task undertaken, were hallmarks of his teaching. Many students, particularly those who sometimes found school a challenge, benefited from his expertise and were inspired by his example. It was with this in mind, and with a desire to continue his legacy in helping science students at Kent Street, that the family endowed a Prize (now a Scholarship) to recognise student achievement and encourage the development of students in science at the School. We are honoured to be able to help in this way.
