An on-line catch-up for members of our Golden Alumni Society (Grammarians who left school 50 years or more ago) was held via Zoom conferencing on Wednesday 19 August from 10 to 11am. More than 20 Society members joined the conversation including participants from Sydney and country Victoria.
Those attending included past students of both Caulfield and Malvern Grammars, who left school between 1945 and 1971. They were joined by CGA Executive Director Linda Sprott, CGS Foundation Executive Director Andrew Cole, CGA Past President and School Council Member Matthew Scholten, CGA Projects Officer Ian Wilkinson and CGA Marketing & Events Officer Rachel Muir.
After a brief welcome from Linda Sprott, and a short report from Andrew Cole, each of those involved had the opportunity to recount some memories from school days and talk about what a CGS (or MMGS) education had meant to them in terms of their lives and careers. A number of participants also shared memorabilia from school days.
All those who joined in enjoyed the opportunity to catch-up and swap some interesting and amusing stories about their time at school or their later involvement with the CGA.
We’d also like to encourage you to connect with your peers by joining the Golden Alumni Facebook Group.
With restrictions still making face-to-face events impossible the CGA plans further on-line events for our Golden Alumni Society members. These include our Virtual High Tea on Thursday 1st October from 2 to 3.30pm. To book for this event click here. Participants will receive a delicious high tea pack, supplied to your door by our caterer – Antonietta’s Kitchen.
We hope to arrange further Golden Alumni Coffee Conversations toward the end of this year and into next year. We hope you will embrace the new normal and join in!
