On July 16, the Savio College boys and Holy Name girls from the Class of 1971 gathered at Dominic College for their first combined reunion. It was quite a milestone considering during their schooling years, the students never combined for classes let alone social events.
There was a lot of news to catch up on, with Old Scholars travelling from Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne to re-connect with one another and to reminisce about their days at school together.
The boys and girls talked non-stop, shared photographs and laughed for hours, and on a tour of the College grounds, many of the Savio boys recounted hijinks that occurred in the now Siena classrooms. The celebrations continued for many of the Old Scholars in Salamanca where more stories and memories were recalled.
Thanks and appreciation must go to Diane Byrne (Cerritelli) and Greg Breen who dedicated so much of their time tracking down their classmates from across the nation.
