About Geoff Handbury (OM 1942)

Geoff Handbury AO (OM 1942) was a successful businessman and passionate philanthropist who generously gave a  transformational gift to support the building of the Science and Technology Hub, one of his numerous gifts to the School.

A fierce advocate for regional development, Mr Handbury also extended his philanthropic generosity across fields including health, the arts and the environment.

Commencing at Melbourne Grammar in 1937, Mr Handbury often described himself as a modest, yet responsible student. Awarded House Colours and Rowing Colours during his final years, he was also a senior officer in the Cadet Corps.

Mr Handbury graduated from Melbourne Grammar School in 1942 with what he described as “a great sense of the value of fellowship”.
