Old Collegians Return to St John’s
One of the most rewarding times for teachers is when Old Collegians reconnect to their school and teachers. At our recent Old Collegians’ weekend we were able to welcome graduates who are one, five and ten years out of College at a range of events. It is pleasing to see the numbers of students returning in each year level increasing over the years and very rewarding to hear of their studies, careers and personal achievements. Many keep in contact through social media and were able to renew old friendships in person, in addition to enjoying a tour of new facilities.
Three functions were held throughout the day. A morning tea in the foyer welcomed our newest graduates back to St John’s after nearly a year.
Overlooking the courtyard, lunch was enjoyed by the 2009 graduates who are making their way in the community through study and work.
In the evening as the sun went down over the cross and fountain, those from the 10 year re-union reminisced about their life at the College and shared about their study, work, marriages and children. Past and present teachers attended all three functions. It is wonderful to see so many of our Old Collegians being part of our College community.
