Old Boys re­union din­ner in­vi­ta­tion to past stu­dents

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE re­vival of “Old Boys” As­so­ci­a­tion Re­u­nions will cel­e­brate its 87th year next week­end.

On Sun­day, May 29 the Uni­ver­sity of Queens­land Gat­ton Past Stu­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion will hold the first re­union in Bund­aberg for ap­prox­i­mately 15 years.

Many years ago the Bund­aberg Branch of the Past Stu­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion was very ac­tive and held an­nual re­u­nions.

The UQGPSA are work­ing to bring these re­u­nions back to Bund­aberg. In­vi­ta­tions have been sent to 500 grad­u­ates to meet for a re­union lunch.

The as­so­ci­a­tion hopes to at­tract more re­cent grad­u­ates and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the fe­male stu­dent com­mu­nity which is well rep­re­sented in Bund­aberg and dis­tricts.

The first an­nual re­union din­ner of the Bund­aberg Branch of the Gat­ton Col­lege Old Boys was held with 20 peo­ple on May 27, 1933 at McRob­bin’s Café, Bour­bong St.

At that time only male stu­dents were able to study at the col­lege.

In a sig­nif­i­cant turn­around from the early days, of the 1600 stu­dents on cam­pus to­day the greater num­ber are fe­male.
