Name of creator
St. George's School for Boys was established in 1931 by Captain F. J. Danby-Hunter. In 1934, the school was re-incorporated as St. George's School (1934) Limited. The new organization was governed by a Board of Directors and a Board of Governors. In 1934 a new building was opened as the Senior School. An Old Boys' Society was created and additional lands were purchased. In 1948 the company was voluntarily replaced by the St. George's Benevolent Society. In 1964, a new building for the Senior School was built. The continuing expansion of the school resulted in the 1979 acquisition of a building and grounds for the Junior School.
