Class of 1978 Reunion - Save the Date


The 40th Reunion of your Alumni Class of 1978, will take place on Friday 16 November later this year. All students in your cohort who commenced from Grade 3 in 1969 to Year 12 in 1978 (and anywhere in between) are welcome to attend - even if you left prior to year 12.

This event is for everyone.


  • When: Friday 16 November 2018
  • Where: 6pm at Marcellin for a hosted tour of the College, then 7pm at The Manningham (aka The Sentimental Bloke) for drinks, finger food and reminiscing
  • Cost: $40 per person (includes finger food and a private function room)
  • Bookings: Will open soon, we will be in touch


In the meantime, our biggest task is to find the whereabouts of everyone - and this includes those from your cohort who may have left the College before 1978 or those who may be feeling a bit shy or reluctant about attending a school reunion.

And this is where we need your help. You are one of 42 from your year that we have an email address for. We estimate there was around 230 students who were part of your cohort between 1969 - 1978 so we obviously have some work to do.

We are aware there are healthy informal networks within your cohort, (even FaceBook!!) but we need to bring all of it together. Our organisers are going to use their extensive connections to do this, but if previous experience is anything to go by, finding the first 80% of your cohort will be relatively painless, it is that remaining 20% that will require every day between now and the event to find.

Can I ask:

  • You to use your networks to get the word out and about
  • Encourage others to get in touch with either the organisers or us directly at our office (details below) or via this web page - here you can fill in any contact information that you have and we can update our records.

Ideally we would like both the mobile phone number and email addresses for everyone. We don’t need physical addresses unless it is the only known way to contact someone.

Here is the list of the volunteers:

Also, feel free to contact me or my colleagues Chris and Lisa at anytime to discuss. We will keep you posted with updates during the year, in the meantime, I look forward to hearing from you and your classmates.
