Class of 1983 reunites for 40-Year Reunion

April 3, 2023

It was with great delight that we welcomed back members of our Class of 1983 for their 40-Year Reunion on Saturday evening (1 April) at the College’s Old Collegians’ Association Pavilion, overlooking the Main Oval.

More than 30 Old Collegians took part in a tour of the College before reconvening at the OCA Pavilion for an evening of catching up and reminiscing about their school days at St Patrick’s back in the late 70s and early 80s with their former classmates.

It was a wonderful occasion to welcome back our Old Collegians, some who had travelled from interstate for the occasion, along with their partners along with a few former staff members from this era, including former College Principal Br Bill Wilding, and teachers Bob Aron, Frank Rice, Peter Kerwan and Juri Kaczkowski.

We hope you enjoy some photos from the evening.

Members of the Class of 1983, along with a few of their former teachers, join together for a group photo to mark their 40-Year Reunion. Pictured, from left, Wayne Sharp, John Schreenan.
