Form 3 Reunion 1969, 1970 & 1971: A Thank You to Early Staff (Four years short of our 50th Anniversary)
In early October 48 former pupils and their partners gathered in Dunedin to honour some of the early staff of SPC. What started out as a recognition of the work of the only 2 Rosminians left in NZ, thankfully expanded to include some of the early Sisters as well.
Students who were in Form 3 of 1969, 1970 and 1971 were the target and this of course included many first day pupils. Father Hill, Father Cunningham, Sister Josie Dolan (Sister Stephen) and Moya Smith (Sister Andrew) were present, but unfortunately an illness at the last minute curtailed Sister Pauline Gallagher’s (Sister David’s) attendance.
What a happy gathering of fun loving people it was! Body shapes and pace may be different, but the sense of humour and happy, grateful memories were a plenty.
If you were in Form 3 in 1969-1971 and didn’t hear about this, then your email is not on the data base, so please flick an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure you’re targeted next time round and for the 50th anniversary.
If you'd like photos from this reunion, and yes there are plenty, please email Anne Hunt.
