RGS Australian Friends – What a Night!
Last Thursday night in Sydney saw the first ever RGS Australian Friends Gathering take place at The Slip Inn in the heart of the City.
The evening was a roaring success with over 40 attendees making the journey from across Australia, including Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and WA. It was fantastic to see so members of the OR Community from every decade since the 1960’s trade stories and reflect on their years at RGS.
With school photos (including some very dodgy haircuts), report cards from the archives and pilgrim snippets on display, plenty of memories were reignited and it was heartwarming to see many OR’s reconnect with old classmates who they had lost contact with.
A huge thanks must go to Neil Brett and James O’Mahony for their assistance in organising the event. The talk of next years RGS Australian Friends Gathering is already gaining momentum as well as talk of regional get-togethers.
Thank you to all those who made the tremendous effort to attend. We would welcome contact from any other ORs in Australia or the immediate region who would like to know more about next years event.
