HSOBA heads to Melbourne and Sydney
Tuesday, 4 June 2013
Gene Phair (’87), President of the HSOBA and a member of the School Board, hosted two Old Boy functions in Melbourne and Sydney in May. Barrie Irons also attended on behalf of the school and we were fortunate enough to have Chris Rae join us for the Melbourne gathering.
The Melbourne Reunion was well attended with about 70 Old Boys at Young and Jackson’s Chloe’s Bar. Many stories were shared across many generations. Barrie finally escaped James Avery (’95), Matthew Nation (’95), Matthew Anning (’95) and Sam Gardner (’97) just in time to catch the last tram home that night!
The Sydney Reunion took place at the Star Casino where we were once again hosted by Old Boy Richard Gush (’93). This was also well attended by about 50 Old Boys. It was especially good to see some of the 2011 leavers there as well as some of the older generation.
These reunions are absolutely crucial in keeping contact with each other and the HSOBA. If you have not updated your details please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure you are on the mailing list for future events.
