June Reunion Festival

Last Saturday we celebrated our June Reunion festival through an online Zoom-union. Despite months of careful planning, the snap lockdown in Victoria meant that our onsite Reunion had to be postponed once again. We called on the skills learnt in 2020 and offered an interim option of an online reunion. Attendees joined us from the Class of 1975, 1976, 1980, 1981, 1985 and 1986, with cheerful and spirited conversations.
 
We look forward to seeing everyone in person, at the on-site Reunions at a date to be confirmed.
