Old Collegians gathered inside Strowan House for 70 Years On

Old Collegians gathered inside Strowan House for the 70 Years On reunion

On Friday 16 – Saturday 17 October, the College welcomed back 19 Old Collegians and some of their wives and partners, to celebrate 70 years since the group first marched up the College driveway in 1950. The festivities included a special chapel service with Rev. Paul Morrow, which was followed by morning tea in Strowan House, then photographs and a quick tour of the new facilities at the College. The group attended the annual Gentlemen’s Luncheon, which was followed by a cocktail party later in the day in the Strowan House dining room. The group reconnected for lunch on Saturday 17 October at organiser Euan Hilson’s (1954) home. There was very positive feedback from those in attendance who were already looking forward to their next reunion. Unfortunately, COVID-19 upset the plans of several Old Collegians living in Auckland and Australia who were unable to attend.
