Members of the Snowy Mountains Grammar School family,

It is with great sadness that I inform you that former student of SMGS, Mason Taylor, passed away on Friday 2 November.


Mason was a boarder at Snowy Mountains Grammar School from 2012 until 2014. After completing Year 10, Mason then continued his studies at home in Sydney to be closer to his family.


I had the pleasure of enrolling Mason for his arrival at our School in 2012 and immediately warmed to his big smile, lovely nature and genuine friendliness to all. During his time at SMGS, Mason was a keen mountain biker, very much enjoyed snowsports and engaged in a host of other outdoor activities which reflected his adventurous spirit.


We remember Mason with great fondness as we celebrate his life and memory. As a young man who recently turned just twenty, he had so much to give and it is so very sad that Mason’s life has ended far too early. He will be deeply missed by his parents and siblings, extended family, close friends, former teachers and many others who knew his kind soul. Our heart goes out to you all.


Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this time.


A service for Mason will be held in Sydney next week.
