Mr Rod Wells
1929 to 2013

On 14 August, Mr Rod Wells, Founder and Foundation Principal of Cannon Hill Anglican College, passed away.

Mr Wells was remembered at a Memorial Service held at Somerset College, Mudgeeraba, on Monday 26 August 2013.

The Memorial Service was attended by our Principal, Mrs Robyn Bell, who gave a fitting tribute to Mr Wells, on behalf of the College. Mrs Bell was joined by Founding Board Member Mrs Wendy Jowett; early Board member and current member of the Foundation Board, Mr Lorne Jones; the first President of the College’s Parents and Friends’ Association, Mr John Holland; and long-term College staff appointed by Mr Wells in 1991, Mrs Elizabeth Mor and Mr Gordon Mathieson.

Members of the CHAC’s Senior Vocal Group, led by Mrs Elizabeth Pratt, joined with members of Somerset College’s Show Choir in singing one of Mr Wells' own arrangements.

Mr Wells, we salute you and thank you for your personal commitment to a noble educational vision; for your enormous drive and enthusiasm and sheer hard work; for your leadership and capacity to gather fellow supporters on the journey with you; and for your ongoing interest in our College, whose stewardship we are so privileged to take forward on your behalf. May God bless you and keep all of your family close.’
