The CGA recently held a combined Luncheon for the Marsden and Archer Chapters on Thursday 3 October. Archer members were able to appreciate the beauty of Malvern Campus and the Valentine Mansion; something different from looking out over the oval from the Lindsay Thompson Centre at Caulfield Campus. Our Marsden members also enjoyed showing their fellow Grammarians around a place that holds so many memories for them.
Our Grammarians were warmly welcomed to the campus by Year 5 and 6 students. It was lovely to see the connection between current students and some of the old boys.
Chapter members also swapped stories about school days and hearing an update on current school activities from Principal Ashleigh Martin.
Thanks to archivist Judith Gibson who put together a wonderful display as always for guests enjoy.
Recent graduates Jessica Cinar and Adam Brand then provided some interesting insights into their current roles as tutors to recipients of the CGS Foundation’s Scholarships for Indigenous and Refugee students during an interview with Foundation Executive Director, Andrew Cole.
A wonderful addition to the day was the celebration of Ian Felsenthal’s 90th Birthday. Everyone sang Happy Birthday and shared a piece of birthday cake. Congratulations on this milestone Ian!
Thank you to all Marsden & Archer Chapter members who attended. We look forward to seeing you at the next CGA Chapter event.
