Celebrating a special Old Collegian’s mighty milestone
October 13, 2022
Our oldest known Old Collegian Laurie Larmer OAM (SPC 1935-40) celebrated a mighty milestone recently, enjoying his 99th birthday with a special celebratory lunch at the Emerald Hotel in south Melbourne with family and friends, including a number of fellow Old Collegians. We wish Laurie a very happy birthday from the entire SPC community!
We were privileged to have Laurie return to the College prior to the COVID pandemic to talk to our students about his remarkable story of how one of St Patrick’s College’s greatest ever war heroes used the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II to embark upon a remarkable story of forgiveness and redemption.
