Important Information for 2022:
Regrettably, we have had to cancel our proposed 'catch up' Grand Reunions in 2022 for all year levels who missed out due to the Covid 19 restrictions of 2020 and 2021.

If we had these scheduled catchup Grand Reunions, this would have involved 27 year level groups, instead of the usual 9 groups, which would have been logistically impossible for our small voluntary committee to organise. We thank you for your understanding.

The Principal’s much smaller 50 year celebration afternoon tea will proceed for the missed years encompassing the classes of 1970, 1971 1972 on Sunday, 15 May 2022.

The usual Grand Reunion scheduled for 2022 will go ahead on Saturday, 22 October 2022. This will encompass the year levels 1962, 1967, 1972, 1977, 1982, 1992, 2002, 2012, and 2017.

Both events will involve a tour of the Main McKinnon Road campus including a video of the exciting new East campus.

Please spread the word amongst your year level regarding this important information and make sure your contact details are up-to-date.

Please also keep an eye out for an email containing the link to the electronic Thistlelonian magazine that will be published shortly.

Kind regards,
Geoff Woolnough
President
