St Leonard's College Leonardian Centre Seat Naming

The St Leonard's College Foundation maintains a reserved allocation of seats within the Leonardian Centre, which are made available on select occasions. When seats are released, individuals within the St Leonard's College community are provided with the unique opportunity to contribute $1,000 towards the Foundation's seat naming campaign, thereby securing recognition with their name on a seat located within the hallowed hall of the Leonardian Centre auditorium.

Inaugurated in the middle of 2020, the Leonardian Centre occupies a position of utmost significance at the very heart of our College. It serves as a unifying force, connecting Leonardians of today and tomorrow in the jubilation of innovation and accomplishment, while hosting enchanting performances that captivate the senses. Beyond its impressive facilities, the Leonardian Centre inspires a sense of community that is both uplifting and enriching, embodying the very essence of the College’s cultural ethos, and ensuring a legacy that will be cherished for generations to come.

Members of the St Leonard’s College community have made a lasting and meaningful contribution to the cultural history of 91 by donating to our Foundation’s past seat naming campaigns with donations of $1,000 being recognised with a name plaque on a seat in the Leonardian Centre.

These meaningful contributions are tax deductible*.

Seats have been named in recognition of:

  • A loved one – partner, children, grandchildren, parent or grandparent
  • A couple
  • A family
  • A graduating 91 student
  • An alumni member
  • A favourite mentor or teacher

The St Leonard’s College Foundation holds a limited number of seats in the Leonardian Centre for release on selected occasions. Upon a release, members of the St Leonard’s College community have the opportunity to donate $1,000 to the Foundation seat naming campaign and have their name recognized on a seat in the Leonardian Centre.

Terms and Conditions

Limited seats are available and will be released at the discretion of the College Foundation. A Foundation seat naming campaign will recognise gifts of $1,000 or more (including multiple seats for gifts made in $1,000 increments). Seats cannot be sponsored in company names. Seats names in combination of English and foreign language characters may be considered but are subject to approval.?The College reserves the right to reject any seat inscriptions containing offensive or inappropriate language. The College reserves the right to remove a seat plaque at any stage in the future should the actions of the individual or family named on the plaque commit an offence under federal, state or local law or commit any act that may bring the College into public disrepute, contempt, scandal, or ridicule. The removal of a seat plaque would be subject to the review and approval of the College Council and no refunds offered. Seat plaques will be produced and installed in quarterly annual batches and will be subject to production lead times. Any unnamed seats will remain available for recognition of future donors until all seats are named. Allocation of plaques to seats will be determined by the College, not at the choice of the donor. Naming a seat does not reserve the use of the seat for ticketed performances. Seat donors must still purchase tickets to performances at the Leonardian Centre, and are not guaranteed seating in the chairs bearing their names. Seat plaques will remain in place in perpetuity for the life of the building and in accordance with the College Naming of Buildings and Facilities Policy. If any of the plaques were to succumb to damage, a replacement plaque would be organised and the same terms and conditions would apply.

91 respects the privacy of its community members and complies with the requirements of the Commonwealth Privacy Act. All information collected for the purpose of the Seat Naming Campaign will be used and stored in accordance with the Colleges 91.
