The Perse School
 

Memorabilia

A keepsake from a quatercentary

The collection

Many items feature the special anniversary stripe, which includes scarlet, one of the School’s original colours. Others use a print of a contemporary tapestry of the Pelican, Prep and Upper created for us by textile artist Charlene Mullen.

Three of the items can be worn by pupils as part of the school uniform: the pin badge (all designs), the anniversary polyester tie and the anniversary scarf. The tie proved so popular that it was adopted as the main school tie at the end of the anniversary year.

Profits from sales of the memorabilia were used to fund our celebrations, including anniversary activities for pupils, the development and production of Around The Perse in 400 Years, the creation and performance of a piece of music based on pupils’ creative ideas, and our community lecture series.

    Wine

    We have worked with award winning wine professional Noel Young to create two special wines from his vineyard in Australia. Named ‘Tessara’ after our 400th anniversary marque, where objects stand in for ‘4’s and ‘0’s, the Semillon Sauvignon Blanc is a delicious unoaked crisp, lemony dry white, while the Shiraz Grenache is a blend of two of the Barossa’s signature varieties to make a full flavoured, yet bright and juicy red, with extra complexity from partial oak aging. Tessara wine is being sold on our behalf by Noel and can be purchased from his website.

    Noel has also created an exclusive 400th anniversary wine club featuring a monthly selection of three mixed cases. A commission from wine club sales will come to the School to help fund our anniversary celebrations. In addition, a further commission will be paid to the School on any purchases from Noel’s website by adding PERSE400 in the comments section when checking out.
