The Georg Memorial Library
Three of Concordia’s buildings have been named after former teachers.
The first of these was the Georg Memorial Library, opened in 1970 and bearing the name of the highly respected deputy headmaster and English and History teacher, Mr Vic Georg. He taught at Concordia for 15 years before his death in February 1969 at the age of 41 years. His obituary in The Lutheran stated that ‘he showed himself to be a truly dedicated and richly talented master’, giving himself ‘unstintingly to his work and going far beyond the call of duty to make certain that his students received the very best he could give them.’
It is fitting that Concordia’s first purpose-built library bore his name. On 26 July 1970 over 900 people attended the Chapel service and dedication of the building which has since been converted into a staff room and offices for teachers.
