Fond memories of school days past were shared by alumni from the Classes of 1986, 1996 & 2006 at their Reunion on Saturday 5 November.
Over forty past students caught up with their school mates from 10, 20 and 30 years ago at an afternoon tea at our Phillip Island Road Campus. The group were suitably impressed with the magnificent 82 acre campus and facilities, and the statement, ‘I wish we had that when I was at school’, was repeated many times throughout the tour.
The tour of our Boys Home Road campus that followed was the highlight of the reunion. Grown adults became school kids again and delighted in visiting their old classrooms, sharing funny memories, noting what had changed about their old school and agreeing that although many years had passed it still felt just the same.
Early Years Reunion – 29 January 2017
Upon hearing that the Boys Home Road campus will close at the end of 2017 when all of Newhaven College will be accommodated at our Phillip Island Road campus, the 1986 cohort decided that an early years’ reunion would be a fitting farewell to the original site that our College founders worked so hard to establish.
Students, families, staff, volunteers and council/board members who were a part of Newhaven College from 1980 – 1990 are invited to attend a reunion and family picnic from 12noon to 5pm on Sunday 29 January, 2017 at our Boys Home Road campus in Newhaven. Details of the day are available on our events page and will be updated as plans evolve.
The founding Principal of Newhaven College, Frank Moore, now lives in China but will be in Australia to attend the reunion. Current Principal Gea Lovell welcomed the idea of a reunion and is calling for all who are interested in attending to update their contact details via the Contact or Alumni page of this website to be kept informed about this and future College reunions.
