The foundations of my life as a soldier and citizen were laid during my education at Saint Pauls College. Etched on the cornerstone of these foundations were the words 'fight the good fight'. This motto became my guide, and I was inspired by the example of knowledge, strength and compassion portrayed by the teachers, students and families that were part of my College experience.
Major General Stuart Lyle Smith (Rtd) AO, DSC, Class of 1980
The values that guide my life have their genesis in my years at St Paul's. The motto, 'Fight the Good Fight', which was established by the founding Brothers, has become part of my personal DNA. I was taught how these words have relevance to every aspect of being a good person. I applied them to the challenges of my school years and they continue to influence my life and the lives of others around me.
