60 Year Reunion Class of 1959

The Old Girls of 1959 were an interested and very enthusiastic group, enjoying their visit to Sturt’s latest exhibition before a tour of the School grounds led by Year 12 students. Saturday’s highlight was seeing the recently renovated Dining Room, with the still applicable quotes of Winifred West. The group was delighted to hear a poem written and delivered by Penny Nelson (McNicoll) especially for her visit entitled, appropriately, In the Dining Room. Following afternoon tea and a much-appreciated visit by Ms Gillick, the Old Girls left to prepare for dinner at a local restaurant. On Sunday the group was welcomed at the Service by Ms Gillick, before enjoying the Year 10 Concert and Service. Thanks to Susie Arnott (Margaret Taylor) for her work as Year Representative and for making this weekend such a success.
