There are numerous events throughout the year which offer Old Collegians and friends of St Mark’s (including parents of current/past students) a chance to catch up and reminisce, share their life experiences and hear about the College’s current and future plans.

J C Bannon Oration

One of the most significant events in the annual calendar of the College, the J C Bannon Oration is a public lecture of high academic quality given each year in memory of the Hon. Dr John Bannon AO, the seventh Master of the College (2002-07). John Bannon was a student at St Mark’s in 1962-63, and was later the second longest serving Premier of South Australia (1982-92). His own academic research related principally to Australia’s federation and Constitution.

It is envisaged that the J C Bannon Oration will also ordinarily be published as a significant academic publication.
