Old Boys: Reunion Dinner
Thursday, 29 November 2012
About 120 Old Boys filled the dining room of the newly refurbished Burbury House for the annual Old Boys’ Reunion Dinner on Saturday 22 September. A great turnout representing a wide range of leaving groups resulted in a jubilant atmosphere. The 2002 leavers were in great spirits with an impressive 32 in attendance. It was also fantastic to see so many of our ‘established Old Boys’ in attendance – many of whom had not seen each other for over 20 years. Drinks and conversations flowed well into the night. The ex-boarders were amazed to see the changes to the House and many commented on the delicious meal served by our talented residential chef, Adam Aitken – how times have changed since the days of schnitzel and chips!
A number of Old Boys and partners joined a tour of the School before the dinner and were amazed at the changes that had occured over the past 15 years; not only the visible changes, but also the amazing opportunities our current students enjoy.
The key to having a successful dinner is undoubtedly the drive from key members of each year group in gathering everyone together, and we would like to thank all those involved. A special thanks to those who flew in from interstate and overseas to attend.
