1978 40 Year Reunion


The Class of 1978 were blessed with a warm and balmy night on Friday 16th November for their 40th reunion.   The group met at Marcellin College for a school tour led by Old Collegian (1981) and Marcellin Foundation Manager Chris Mirabella. Many had not been back to Marcellin since they left 40 years  ago, so were duly impressed by the new buildings and improvements that have taken place over the years, but especially of the new Hermitage Building. 

After the tour, the group headed over to the Manningham Hotel (aka The Sentimental Bloke) for canapes and drinks accompanied by lots of reminiscing, story telling and laughter which continued well into the night. 

Steve McCarthy did the formal welcome, Adrian Collins (1978 School Captain) prepared a speech the ever entertaining John Canavan provided a comedy routine.

A big thank you to our organising committee who worked so hard to find and connect with people and encourage them to come along; Andrew Cullinan, Rob Tankey and Steve McCarthy.
