History

HISTORY OF THE QLD GIRLS PRIMARY INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS,

ANDREWS CUP ASSOCIATION

 

In 1938, there were many long-established girls independent schools in Queensland but few had junior or primary grades.

 

Two sisters, Isabel Andrews (1898-1981) and Jessie Andrews (1910-2008) both teachers at Somerville House, felt the younger students who competed in inter form sports competitions with senior students, though very enthusiastic, were never going to be successful.

 

The Andrews sisters approached Miss Jarrett, Principal of Somerville House (1910-1940) to see if they could donate a trophy for sporting activities between Somerville House and sister school Clayfield College at the junior school level. In 1938, the Andrews Cup competition became established.

 

At the end of each year the Andrews Cup was awarded to the School which had achieved most points in the sports of swimming, athletics, ballgames, tennis and basketball. Additional Andrews Cup trophies for lifesaving, “The Wilson Kerr Cup” and for an open swimming relay, “The Mabel Springfield Cup”, were also introduced in the 1940’s.

 

In 1944 Moreton Bay College joined the Andrews Cup Association and in 1962 St Aidan’s, St Hilda’s and St Margaret’s also became members. Later, Toowoomba schools, The Glennie School and Toowoomba Anglican School joined the competition and in 2012 Ipswich Junior Grammar School and Fairholme College also became members. Today, the Andrews Cup Association has ten member schools located in Brisbane, Ipswich, Gold Coast and Toowoomba all competing in the sporting program.

 

In 1965 a new Andrews Cup was required due to ‘wear and tear’ and this trophy lasted until 1992. The third replacement cup was engraved with the names of the schools which won individual sports. In 2007, it was agreed by schools that trophies for all the individual Andrews Cup sports should be introduced and in 2017 the Noel McBride Cup for Cross Country and the Sue Pavish Cup for Athletics were introduced for new relay events.

 

2019 saw the last softball competition between member schools. The range of sports in the Andrews Cup Program today is enjoyed by hundreds of primary school girls every year and includes: swimming, tennis, touch football, cross country, netball, athletics, basketball, cricket, football, and artistic gymnastics.
